World Premiere

The world premiere of the brand new musical adaptation of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button lands at the Southwark Playhouse this May! Based on the short story of F. Scott Fitzgerald the new musical tells the story of Benjamin Button, who experiences a totally unique affliction.

Growing up in a small fishing town Benjamin Button has always been an outsider. Born as an old man and increasingly getting younger, Button dreams of a life filled with adventure and love. When he meets a local girl called Elowen Keene Button's wants can finally be realised, but with war looming will Button get to live out his dream? 

Featuring music and lyrics by Darren Clark, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is directed by Jethro Compton.

Oscar Nominee

it takes all of ten seconds to be in its generous embrace...It calls for quicksilver, charismatic acting and singing. It gets it from this versatile cast. It's an evening that, frankly, gets everything right.
