Thomas Flynn and Daniel Abelson will lead the cast in Tom Ratcliffe’s debut play, Circa, exploring the blurred identity of the gay relationship in the modern age. Investigating one man’s romantic life over a period of thirty years, Circa follows his different relationships and encounters.
Flynn and Abelson are joined by Antony Gabriel, Joseph Rowe and Jenna Fincken.
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?
Director Andrew Twyman comments, 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 is at The Old Red Lion 5th to 30th March 2019.
