Brutal, sexual, and poetic, BENT is the story of forbidden love triumphing over persecution. This production honoring the 25th anniversary played September 26 through October 26 at the Ruby Theatre at the Complex, in the heart of Hollywood’s Theatre Row.

       
    

Martin Sherman’s worldwide hit play caused an uproar when it premiered in 1979. "It educated the world," Sherman explains. "People knew about how the Third Reich treated Jews and, to some extent, gypsies and political prisoners. But very little had come out about their treatment of homosexuals."

In Redemption Group’s provocative staging, sets and costumes transport audiences to a major urban center in the near future where terror and bigotry are alive and well. Sherman’s haunting text remains unchanged with references to Berlin, Dachau and Hitler existing cheek-by-jowl with contemporary house music, right-wing militia and one fierce drag queen. Director John Lavin believes that the time is ripe to remind audiences that “cultures who refuse to learn from their mistakes are condemned by history to repeat them.”

"Charles is one of the most dedicated and committed Actors I've ever worked with."
