BENEFACTORS

directed by Peter Zinn

Retro Productions presents BENEFACTORS by Michael Frayn 

Set against the backdrop of the 1960s new housing projects in London, BENEFACTORS centers on an idealistic architect David and his wife Jane and their relationship with their cynical friend Colin and his wife Sheila. David is attempting to build new homes to replace the "twilight area" housing of Basuto Road and is gradually forced by the housing council into designing skyscrapers despite his aversion to them. Sheila becomes his secretary, but when Colin leaves her and their children to squat in Basuto Road and wage battle against the proposed project, it is unclear if Sheila is helping David and Jane or the other way around.
