Advert Description

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans Max is gay and sent to Dachau concentration camp under the Nazi regime. He denies he is gay and gets the Jews' yellow label instead of the pink one given to gays. In camp he falls in love with his fellow prisoner Horst, who wears his pink triangle with pride. The subject matter of Bent - the persecution of homosexuals in Nazi Germany - is highly charged and controversial. But it is, as Nicholas de Jongh described it in The Guardian, ...a play of importance, power and pathos which should concern us all. In its subtle characterisation and powerful analysis of human dignity under extreme duress, it is a play that transcends the boundaries of its ostensible theme. Bent took London by storm when it was first seen at the Royal Court Theatre, London, starring Ian McKellen and Tom Bell. It transferred via the Criterion Theatre to Broadway, where it received a Tony nomination for Best Play and won The Dramatists' Guild Hull-Warriner Award. See Oxfam website for delivery information
