Bill Rosenfield’s coming of age and coming out play set in 1970’s America will make its West End debut at the Trafalgar Studios from the 5th to the 29th April.
Directed by Alexander Lass, 46 Beacon is a story of a one night that can change your life. It makes its West End debut following a short run at the Hope Theatre in 2015.
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.
Talking about the news Bill Rosenfield said: “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.”
Full casting and creative team for the production has yet to be announced.
Bill Rosenfield’s previous plays include True Fans (The Abbey, Orlando/Blank Theatre LA Living Room Series), Sunshine and Shadow (Blank Theatre LA, Living Room Series), Let Me (Asolo Theatre, Sarasota Florida, Unplugged Series) and the award-winning one act Bridal Terrorism.
Alexander Lass’s previous credits include Chips With Everything (Farrer Theatre), Giant Leap (Pleasance, Edinburgh), Young Bloods (RADA Festival), Scenes on the Sand (Arcola Tent), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (LAMDA Summer School), and Skeletons (Orange Tree Theatre).
