Bent tells the story of homosexual men persecuted by the Third Reich of Germany. Roles are as follows:
Max, Age 34. An attractive gay man, brimming with confidence and sex appeal and appears to be intimidated by no-one. However beneath the brash surface lurks a quiet and loving person.
Rudy, Aged 22-28. The caring and loving partner to Max, who loves his home and yearns for a quiet life with Max. He is a dancer in a nightclub.
Horst, Age 22-28. A gay man already imprisoned in the concentration camp. A level headed and educated person who is strong willed and has a determination to survive.
Wolf / Kapo. A stereotypical ‘Aryan’ male. He is an officer in the SA. Rather gullible and easily swayed.
Uncle Freddie. A very well spoken and well dressed middle aged gay man who shows every sign of wealth and extravagance.
Greta (MALE). The middle aged transvestite owner of a cabaret club in Berlin. (sings)
Captain, Aged 28-35. The German ‘Aryan’ head of the concentration camp. Not a nice guy.
Lieutenant, Aged 28-35. A German ‘Aryan’ Lieutenant who is particularly keen on obeying every order with precision. Also, not a good guy.
