Based on the short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of The Great Gatsby and The Tender and the Damned, THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON is playing at the Southwark Playhouse Elephant for a limited run this spring.
Discover a sleepy fishing harbour on the north coast of Cornwall, home to a most curious story.
Experience this extraordinary, inspirational, and timeless tale of a love that defies all odds. Set to a thunderous, foot-stomping folk score, THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON reminds us, no matter how much time we have, to make every second count.
From Jethro Compton, writer and director of White Fang (★★★★ The Times) and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (★★★★ The Telegraph), and Darren Clark, winner of the MTI Stiles & Drewe Mentorship Award, composer and lyricist of These Trees Are Made of Blood, Day of the Living, and The Wicker Husband (★★★★★ WhatsOnStage).

Born in rather unusual circumstances, Benjamin Button is an old man, not at the end of his life, but at the beginning. Locked away from the world and branded a monster, Benjamin dreams of the chance to live a little life. More than anything, he dreams of love. With no hope of finding it, Benjamin resigns himself to a life of solitude, until, one day, a miracle occurs – the local barmaid, Elowen Keene. But as the years come and go, time and tide threaten to tear the two apart.
