Event description

Dukes. Drag. Drama.

“Gay people didn’t exist.” Or at least that’s what we’ve been told.

Step back to 1588 and meet Galatea and Phillida, two women who hide in the woods pretending to be boys (so they don’t get sacrificed to Neptune’s vicious monster!) It’s a classic meet cute. And they don’t need help from Cupid to fall in love, these ladies do it all on their own.

Fast-forward to 1604 and something has changed. The woods are gone, the magic repressed, a puritanical religious state has taken control. But there might be a way back to this queer utopia. And if there is, Isabella will find it.

Adapted from John Lyly’s Galatea, and William Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, Love & Faith (and something unholy) is a queer fever dream, drag show, and classic love story all rolled into one.
