The acrimonious give and take of life sets up the premise for the Tony Award-nominated ‘Benefactors,’ set in 1960s London. Skillfully examining the fragility of human relationships, ’Benefactors’ sketches an intricate portrait of idealism and the toll political and psychological sacrifice has on hope, friendship and love.
