Brokeback Mountain is soon to be a new stage play based on Annie Proulx’s award‑winning short story that was later adapted for the legendary 2005 Oscar‑winning movie.
In 1963, two young men, Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist, are hired for the summer to look after sheep at a remote grazing range on Brokeback Mountain in Wyoming. Unexpectedly, alone in the wilderness, they form an intense emotional and physical bond that will change their lives forever. And over the next twenty years, as their separate lives play out through marriages, children and dead-end jobs, they long to be together, back on Brokeback Mountain, in a place where there are no secrets, only each other.
The movie Brokeback Mountain became a cultural phenomenon, winning multiple awards including the Oscars, BAFTAs and Golden Globes for Best Picture & Best Adapted Screenplay, but this powerful and deeply moving tale has never before been seen on stage as a play.
