SUMMARY

Max is gay and sent to Dachau concentration camp. He denies he is gay and gets

the Jews’ yellow label instead of the pink triangle. In camp he falls in love with

his fellow prisoner Horst, who wears his pink triangle with pride.

With one of the most thought-provoking endings in theatre history, the subject

matter is highly charged and controversial. In its subtle characterisation and

powerful analysis of human dignity under extreme duress, Bent is a truthful and

shattering story of love enduring the persecution of homosexuals in 1934 Nazi

Germany. An undeniably powerful post-war theatre classic, it transcends the

boundaries of its ostensible theme.

Table9 Productions is a new theatre production company, created to support

semi-professional and amateur musical theatre and drama productions in the

South East of England.
