Callisto: A Queer Epic

Callisto: A Queer Epic

Arcola Theatre · 18 OCT - 22 OCT

I don’t believe the word love has ever meant the same thing twice

Overview

Four queer stories scattered across time and space.

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 Studios, searching for the love of her life.

And on the Moon, 2223, Lorn is building a paradise to sleep in, but Cal is determined to keep him awake.

A constellation of queer stories, reframing past narratives and sculpting future worlds
