AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The classic ‘Death in Venice’ reimagined by award winning writer Sofia Chapman, with Thomas Mann’s innocent Tadzio now the gay boy Todd, rampaging around Venice and getting up to mischief. Agnes, in Venice to collect gaudy masks and glassware, yearns after Todd, but is in the process of transitioning. Michael, in Venice to write a musical, also finds Todd irresistible. Will Agnes lose her chance with Todd by becoming female? Or will she lose him anyway to her friend Michael? On top of all this, the water levels in Venice are rising and threatening to sweep them all away on a tide of emotion. Featuring original music, miniature gondolas and a masked disco.'
