Callisto: A Queer Epic Summary

Callisto: A Queer Epic by Hal Coase

Callisto is a swirling constellation of remarkable queer stories, weaving together four stories of same-sex relationships from across the ages. Hurtle across time and space with this scintillating and extraordinary new play. launching from a 17th-century opera house through cislunar space and into the distant future, Callisto tells four stories that have nothing and everything in common. 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. These love stories are both poignant and comic - a bright constellation of queer encounters. Callisto premiered at The Pleasance Dome at the Edinburgh Festival in 2016 and transferred to the Arcola Theatre, London.
