The address is 46 Beacon. The place is 1970s Boston. Alan (Oliver Coopersmith) and Robert (Jay Taylor) spend a balmy July evening hoping for a connection, emotional or physical? 46 Beacon charts their quest in Bill Rosenfield’s fresh, funny and moving script.
Set within a theatrical hotel, Robert has invited Alan back to his room and although they are at different stages of their lives, they each have something the other yearns for, but are they willing to give it?
46 Beacon is the story of that night your life was changed forever.
Directed by Alexander Lass and starring Oliver Coopersmith (Netflix’s I-Boy and the lead in forthcoming Sky Atlantic series Tin Star opposite Tim Roth and Christina Hendricks) and Jay Taylor (Donkey Punch, Nell Gwynn and Wolf Hall/Bring up the Bodies)
