Making its West End debut, 46 Beacon, a coming-of-age and coming-out play set in 1970’s America, will arrive at Trafalgar Studios 2 for a limited season, running from 5 – 29 April 2017, with press night on 10 April.
Following a short run in 2015 at The Hope Theatre, and written by Drama Desk and Richard Rodgers Award winner Bill Rosenfield, this memory play is directed by Alexander Lass and produced by Oli Sones and Ed Sinke. Full casting and further creative details for 46 Beacon to be announced in due course.
The address is 46 Beacon. The place is 1970s Boston. Alan and Robert spend a balmy July evening hoping for a connection, emotional or physical? 46 Beacon charts their quest in Bill Rosenfield’s fresh, funny and moving script.
Bill Rosenfield said, “I couldn’t be happier that a semi-autobiographical account of a special night in my life is opening in the West End. Ultimately the play came out of my need to express just how far and fast Gay politics had progressed, in a touching but, I hope, also humorous way, and I am really excited to bring it to a wider London audience”.
Set within a theatrical hotel, Robert has invited Alan back to his room and although they are at different stages of their lives, they each have something the other yearns for. But are they willing to give it?
46 Beacon is the story of that night your life was forever changed.
