Why See 46 Beacon?

those summer nights

Trafalgar Studios host the West End Debut of Bill Rosenfield's new memory play that harks back to those halcyon days of balmy summer nights that never truly leave us. A coming of age coming out play, 46 Beacon is the story of actor Robert who finds himself a fish out of water in 1970s Boston. Worried he might have missed out professionally, he finds comfort in a theatrical hotel with Alan.

Both of them find themselves at a turning point in their lives, but can both men overcome their own feelings to make a lasting connection, or will their association be as fleeting as a warm July evening? Witty, crisp and moving 46 Beacon will leave you reminisicing on your own night that changed everything.
