About the Show/Event

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Information for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button at Southwark Playhouse, Inner London (Musical). Discover a sleepy fishing harbour at the end of the First World War - home to a most curious story of one man, and the timeless tale of a love that defies all odds. Born in the most unusual circumstances, Benjamin Button is an old man, not at the end of his life, but at the beginning. Trapped in a body where he doesn't belong, locked away from the world and branded a monster, Benjamin dreams of freedom and adventure. And more than anything, he dreams of love. But just as he gives up hope, resigning himself to a life of solitude, a miracle occurs - a local girl, by the name of Elowen Keene. But, as we all know, time and tide wait for no man, and as the decades pass, their lives begin to move in reverse. And when war calls Benjamin across the seas, time is not their only enemy.
