1897. A parlour in Victorian London. Two men trapped together, facing a secret that will change their lives forever

James and Edwin are worlds apart. But when they find themselves unexpectedly entwined by a twist of fate, they must face their similarities and the secrets they keep – from each other, and from themselves.

The clock of history is ticking.

Can we hold everything we love on our shoulders? When Atlas Met Tantalus is a taut, poignant new work highlighting issues of queer identity, community, public outing and the way that history shapes our present, within a witty and engaging one-hour drama.

Est. run time: 1 hour

16+ (language, threat and some sexual innuendo)
