June 13, 2023
THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON has opened at Southwark Playhouse Elephant - featuring Philippa Hogg.

After receiving its premiere production in 2019, the new musical has opened to rave reviews - with WhatsOnStage calling it "an unqualified triumph" (★★★★★).

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.

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.

Based on the short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of The Great Gatsby and The Tender and the Damned.
