Bill Rosenfield's 46 Beacon transfers to the Trafalgar Studios 2
A coming-of-age and coming-out play transfer to Trafalgar Studios.
A new play by Bill Rosenfield 46 Beacon has announced that it will open at Trafalgar Studios 2 for a limited season from 5 to 29 April 2017, with an official opening on 10 April. The production transfers to the Trafalgar following a 2015 run at The Hope Theatre in Islington.
Described as "a coming-of-age and coming-out play set in 1970’s America" it is written by Drama Desk Award winner Bill Rosenfield. The production will be directed by Alexander Lass and produced by Oli Sones and Ed Sinke with full cast and creative team to be announced.
"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.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".
Bill Rosenfield said of the announcement: “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”.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
