Germany,1934. Amid burgeoning fascist terror and the persecution of homosexuals, a surprising love story unfolds in Martin Sherman’s masterpiece, Bent. From the seamy world of Berlin’s underground nightclubs to the stark horror of Dachau, this is a harrowing account of love, hate and prejudice, powerfully capturing an unforgettable chapter in recent history. Ian McKellen starred in the first production of Bent at the Royal Court 25 years ago, it has since been produced in over 40 countries, revived at the National Theatre in 1990 and made into a feature film in 1997.

Contains strong language and scenes of a sexual nature. Not suitable for under 14s.
