Hit new West End play Brokeback Mountain has released a trailer for the show, featuring its stars Mike Faist and Lucas Hedges.
The show is based on Annie Proulx’s novel, which was turned into a blockbuster, Oscar-winning movie directed by Ang Lee.
Set in Wyoming, US, in 1963, when Ennis and Jack take jobs on the isolated Brokeback Mountain, all their certainties of life change forever as they flounder in unexpected emotional waters of increasing depth.
The stage show boasts music by Dan Gillespie Sells (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie), performed on stage during the play by acclaimed singer Eddi Reader (Fairground Attraction) as The Balladeer, and her band.
