September 01, 1995|By The Hollywood Reporter

Writer-actor-director Sean Mathias, one of Britain's top young theater professionals, will make his feature directorial debut on "Bent," an adaptation of Martin Sherman's critically acclaimed Broadway play.

Sarah Radclyffe, who produced such films as "My Beautiful Laundrette" and "Sirens," starring Hugh Grant, will produce. A controversial drama involving gays imprisoned in a Nazi-run concentration camp, "Bent" played on Broadway in 1979 and 1980 with Richard Gere and David Dukes in the cast.
