First Look at Sadie Frost and cast of Britten in Brooklyn
Photos have been released of Sadie Frost and cast in the world premiere of Zoe Lewis’s play Britten in Brooklyn which runs at Wilton's Music Hall from 31 August to 17 September, with an official opening night on 2 September 2016.
The cast features Ruby Bentall (Carson McCullers), David Burnett (John Dunne), Sadie Frost (Gypsy Rose Lee), John Hollingworth (WH Auden) and Ryan Sampson (Benjamin Britten).
"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."
Based on true events the play is directed by Oli Rose. Photos by Marc Brenner.
