About the Show Less...

A musical version of Graham Greene's legendary novel about gang warfare and catholic guilt. Read More >

A gang war is raging through the dark underworld of 1930’s Brighton. Pinky, malign and ruthless, has killed a man. Caught up in the violence of the weekend, the only incriminating witness to the murder is Rose, a 16 year old Catholic girl with a memory for faces and eyes only for Pinky. A wedding would buy her silence, but Pinky doesn’t believe in love and marriage… 

Brighton Rock is a snappy study of gangland rivalry and the psychology of a psychotic seventeen year old Catholic boy.
