Summary Drawn from the life of Benjamin Britten and informed by many personal interviews with the composer's friends and especially his sister Beth, this play has an austere beauty which serves to reveal the humanity of the composer and affords a glance at the ambition of the man. It explores the conflict between his association with W. H. Auden and his partnership with Peter Pears culminating in the triumphant première of 'Peter Grimes' in 1945. This is neither 'faction' nor drama documentary but a play which resonates beyond its specific characters
