Their lives paralleled on both sides of the Atlantic, these two critically acclaimed international award-winning productions take you deep into the heart of the men themselves and their timeless writing.

Over 80,000 people around the world have enjoyed this critically acclaimed production which has included sell-out seasons at London’s Lyric Hammersmith, Off Broadway, Edinburgh and The British Library.
