I Am a Camera archiveIt is 1930's Berlin; Chris and the infamous Sally Bowles struggle with poverty, drink, love and sex against a backdrop of the gathering clouds of Fascism. A touching and funny portrayal of friendship in a world splintered by hysteria and hatred. John Van Druten's I Am A Camera is the play that inspired the musical Cabaret. Cornelius Cooke Productions revive this forgotten work in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the death of Christopher Isherwood, whose classic novel The Berlin Stories formed the basis for Van Druten's play. Come and meet the original Sally Bowles.
