Photo Flash: In Rehearsal With Sadie Frost For BRITTEN IN BROOKLYN
Rehearsal photos have been released for the world premiere of Zoe Lewis's
BRITTEN IN BROOKLYN at Wilton's Music Hall. The play, based on true events, stars Sadie Frost as Gypsy Rose Lee, alongside Ruby Bentall, David Burnett, John Hollingworth and Ryan Sampson. Directed by Oli Rose, Britten in Brooklyn will play for a strictly limited season of 21 performances from 31 August to 17 September. Press night is 2 September.
The bohemian lifestyle of Benjamin Britten, WH Auden, Carson McCullers and Gypsy Rose Lee in the artistic community at 7 Middagh Street starts to unravel as World War II becomes a brutal reality. Exiled in America for his beliefs and a national disgrace, Benjamin Britten must decide which way his conflicted political ideals lie, but the constant parties, doomed affairs and John Dunne, the mysterious stranger, provide an easy distraction.
