Venue: Soho Theatre
Lesbian Space Crime is an intergalactic queer comedy romp with songs! – now playing at Soho Theatre (until 22 December).
Co-created by Robbie Taylor Hunt, Eleanor Colville and Rosanna Suppa, amidst unhinged hilarity and raucous original songs, Lesbian Space Crime raises nuanced queer questions about the pressures of representation on LGBTQIA+ individuals.
In the show an astronaut is accused of criminal activity against her ex-wife whilst on a mission thousands of miles from Earth; it is the dawn of space-crime, and a new era for queer representation. Isolated in space, cornered by her colleagues, berated by her boss, and jeopardised by a Gemini, an astronaut is caught up in a constellation of bad times. Thankfully, she’s not from one of 69 Earth-countries where she would be a criminal just for being gay at all.
Lesbian Space Crime was shortlisted for New Diorama and Underbelly’s Untapped Award in 2020.
The producers are Airlock, who were established in 2016 to present unheard LGBTQIA+ stories and characters.Website & Booking
