Callisto: a queer epic

Callisto: a queer epic

Arcola Theatre · 05 DEC - 23 DEC

Following two sold-out and critically-acclaimed runs at Arcola and the Edinburgh Fringe, Callisto: a queer epic returns for three weeks only this December.

Overview

Callisto is a swirling constellation of remarkable queer stories.

In London, 1680, opera star Arabella Hunt has secretly entered into the first recorded gay marriage in UK history.
In Worcester, 1936, Alan Turing pays one final visit to Isobel Morcom, mother of his lost first love, Christopher.
In the San Fernando Valley, 1979, Tammy Frazer arrives at Callisto Pornographic Studios, searching for the love of her life.
And on the Moon, 2223, Lorn is building a paradise to sleep in, but his A.I. companion Cal is determined to keep him awake.

Hurtle across time and space with this scintillating and extraordinary new play.
