News   Revival of Frayn's Benefactors Opens June 19 in London

Playwright Michael Frayn — who had Copenhagen at the Duchess Theatre a year or so ago and current hits with Noises Off in London (Comedy Theatre) and New York — is set to have another revival aired at the Albery Theatre.

Benefactors, starring Neil Pearson and directed by Jeremy Sams, will preview at the Albery beginning June 19 with an opening set for June 25.

The play was first staged in the mid 1980's, at the Vaudeville, and won an Olivier Award for Best Play before transferring to New York. It examines the relationships between two neighboring couples over a substantial period of time — 15 years.
