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

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.

Traces a constellation of four queer stories scattered across time and space, reframing past narratives and sculpting future worlds.

Ages 14+

“He laces different eras and places with ease... Witty and sardonic one-liners... Steadily strong performances... Celebratory.”

Cindy Marcolina (Broadway World)

“Audacious and dense account of queer lives that proves highly entertaining without quite connecting its disparate elements.”

Dave Hollander (The Stage)
