In Beautiful Damned, a husband and wife meet in a smoky bar and relive the last ten years of their lives. Told through a series of flashbacks, re-enactments and reminiscences, the play is the profile of a relationship from its first breaths to a point of no return.
The play is based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's second novel, The Beautiful and Damned, which focuses on the relationship between two people, Gloria and Anthony Patch, who are loosely based on Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda.
The writer, Ben Weaver, says that he was attracted to the experimental style of the novel and felt inspired to further explore the novel’s attitude to performance and awareness of itself as fiction in this adaptation.
