The production captured hearts last year with its sold-out run at Southwark Playhouse - winning Best Musical Theatre Production at the 2024 Off West End Awards.

Jethro Compton and Darren Clark's musical takes audiences on an electrifying journey through the timeless tale of a love that defies all odds. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is an enchantingly beautiful musical that reminds us to make every second count. The musical contains a breathtaking soundtrack, performed by an actor-musician ensemble. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic short story is relocated to a fishing village on the north coast of Cornwall, you won't want to miss it!
