The twenty-first century. Being gay is supposedly more integrated than ever. Marriage is legal, parenthood is possible and #LoveWins is trending on twitter. The time has arrived to settle down with the man you love for a life of lasting companionship. But in a world where sex is readily available, and with a history of sexual freedom; what does it mean to be in a gay relationship in the modern age? And why are so many gay men still lonely?
As well as being directed by Andrew Twyman, the production’s creative team includes designs by Luke W Robson and is produced by work.Theatre and Harlow Playhouse.
Talking about the production Andrew Twyman said: “Circa is a rare find; a story that beautifully articulates a sweeping multigenerational search for love. I’m overjoyed to be working with five actors whose talent and sensitivity will make these truthful, complex characters sing and their stories soar.”
Circa will play at the Old Red Lion Theatre from the 5th to the 30th March.
