Hard-hitting play examining homosexuality in the 21st century
Fresh from a world première at the Theater de Meervaart, Amsterdam, earlier this year, Circa (by Tom Ratcliffe) comes to London and The Vaults for it's UK première this June as part of Pride In London Festival. "That’s what everyone says isn't it? Gay men shag everything. Disease and all that. My mum, when I came out, the first thing she said to me was ‘don’t get AIDS'…But things are different now. They’ll be different for us." The twenty-first century. Homosexuality is now more integrated than ever. Marriage is legal, parenthood is possible and 'homophobics' are now the one's shunned from society. The time has arrived to replace promiscuity with ever-lasting companionship: but is it really that simple? Circa follows the story of a man’s navigation through romantic life, exploring the dangers of expectation and how relationships can shape you into a person you never expected to become. Over 15s only. Valid ID may be required.
"What can I say? The cast. The direction. The play. Oh what theatre can do. Wow."
