Two men meet at a funeral.
Gil knew the deceased. Benny did not.
Before long their families are close.
Soon they’ll be singing the same tune.


Following a sold-out run of live streamed shows in February, Hymn returns to the Almeida for the first time in front of a live in-person audience.

Written by award-winning playwright Lolita Chakrabarti, best known for her internationally acclaimed play Red Velvet and her recent stage adaptation of the novel Life of Pi, this soulful new play, filled with music, asks what it takes to be a good father, brother or son.
