Christopher And His Kind
A drama that chronicles the formative years of one of the 20th century’s most celebrated writers, Christopher Isherwood, based on his 1976 memoir of the same name.
The ‘divinely decadent’ Berlin cabaret scene is in full swing when a young and wide-eyed Christopher Isherwood arrives in the city to stay with his close friend and occasional lover, the poet WH Auden. To Isherwood’s reserved English sensibility, the city’s thriving gay subculture is thrilling and intoxicating. But Christopher soon finds himself heartbroken after the failure of a hopeless love affair, and so sets out on a process of self-discovery as he forges an identity and place for himself amidst the chaos of 1930s Berlin.
