Zoe Lewis's new play Britten in Brooklyn opens this week at Wilton's Music Hall with a cast including Sadie Frost as Gypsy Rose Lee and Ryan Sampson as Benjamin Britten.

We met with the cast, who explained how the play includes WH Auden, Britten and novelist Carson McCullers all living in one bohemian house in Brooklyn as World War II begins and is based on true events.

Directed by Oli Rose, the cast also includes Ruby Bentall, David Burnett, and John Hollingworth.

Britten in Brooklyn runs at Wilton's Music Hall from 2 September to 17 September and is currently in previews.
