Being Brahms

Anton does his best but it’s a tough world out there - what with the Nazis, internment, a loveless marriage and a son he can’t communicate with.

Being Brahms is a much better option, a world of soothing lullabies and the lovely Clara Schumann to drool over, a world where everything seems so much clearer.

Award-winning playwright Gail Louw blends a universal, heartfelt story about fathers and sons with the wondrous music of Johannes Brahms in this new one-man show performed by Andrew Wheaton.

Once described by The Stage as an actor of all parts, Andrew Wheaton has played everything from a dead body in a comedy thriller to multi-role ensemble work, and major roles in productions as diverse as Shakespeare and musicals in the West End and New York.

“This play is a masterpiece – the acting incredible and the story brilliant.  The setting and music for this one act play is simple yet so atmospheric and powerful.  Andrew Wheaton convinces us of the horrors of misplaced power and the terror of the humiliated.  This stunning,  gripping play is one not to miss” Audrey Ardern-Jones OBE
