Cast announced for SAN DOMINO at the Tristan Bates Theatre

Final casting has been announced for musical drama San Domino by Tim Anfilogoff and Alan Whittaker, based on Mussolini’s infamous persecution of homosexuals. It will play from Tuesday 5 to Saturday 30 June at Tristan Bates Theatre.

San Domino is the story of a group of men sentenced to five years confinement for degeneracy on the island fortress of San Domino, with actor-musicians conjuring up an intimate tragi-comic world of love, loss and the struggle just to survive.

The cast includes Hannah Genesius; David Gibbons ; Callum Hale; Matthew Hendrickson; Alexander Hulme; Andrew Jardine; Christopher Laishley; Ross McKenna; Grant Neal;  Fergal Newton; Roger Parkins; Andrew Pepper and Mark Stewart.

One night in 1939, Carlo, Claudio and their friends are arrested. Condemned without a trial, they arrive on San Domino: a prison island solely for gay men.  Mussolini’s regime had unwittingly created a part of Italy in which men were expected to be openly gay. For all the indignity and squalor of prison life, men previously forced to live in the shadows now have no need to hide who they are. But in the background war is looming…
