Part madcap misadventure, part piercing social satire, Auden and Isherwood's vivid depiction of a world on the brink of collapse has never seemed so timely.
Two of the most significant voices of the Twentieth Century, Auden and Isherwood were lifelong friends and intermittently lovers.
Auden has been hailed as the modern poet and Isherwood's The Berlin Stories are indelibly inked on popular imagination through Cabaret.
The Dog Beneath the Skin was their first dramatic collaboration.

Ten years ago, Sir Francis Crewe, heir to the local estate disappeared.
