Brokeback Mountain

Brokeback Mountain

"Brokeback Mountain is a play with music, written by Ashley Robinson with songs by Dan Gillespie Sells (from The Feeling) and based on Annie Proulx's short story.

The sohoplace West End run is directed by Jonathan Butterell, starring Mike Faist as Jack and Lucas Hedges as Ennis, both making their West End stage debuts."

Wyoming 1963: a wild landscape where people live in extreme rural poverty in tight, insular and conservative communities. When Ennis and Jack take jobs on the isolated Brokeback Mountain, all their certainties of life change forever as they flounder in unexpected emotional waters of increasing depth. Dan Gillespie Sells' beautiful Country and Western songs weave heartbreakingly through this intense tale of an irresistible and hidden love spanning twenty years and its tragic consequences.
