Cecil Beaton’s Diaries
ADAPTED AND PERFORMED BY RICHARD STIRLING.
15 July 2023
“If it is snobbish to prefer those who are beautiful, I am a snob.”
Cecil Beaton’s photographs showed his versatility; his diaries exposed the cost. Blisteringly funny, with appearances ranging from the Queen Mother and Elizabeth Taylor to Churchill and Truman Capote, the diaries paint a self-portrait of the 20th century’s most compelling dandy.
Direct from Brits Off Broadway, the diaries of photographer and designer Sir Cecil Beaton come to the London stage for the first time, to accompany his most iconic images.
