The inside track on the fifth Beatle
Such was Brian Epstein's influence on the Beatles, this celebrated play only needs his surname as its title. This portrait of the band's infamous manager offers a window into the tortured soul of a man who died aged 32 without escaping the closet, or his drug-addled demons. Don't expect sing-alongs, but pack a hanky - there's no happy ending here.
"Continually intriguing, informative and...offering quite a nuanced portrait."
