Set in the 1970s and charged with the music of the era, Callings,follows the lives of gay and lesbian people who sought community through Cara-Friend service – a phoneline and befriending service set up in the 1970’s to support our hidden LGBTQ+ communities.This poignant new political play explores how these resilient individuals found themselves and each other during those oppressive times.
Set amidst a storm of anti-gay headlines, Callings delves deep into the struggle for survival which queer people faced on a daily basis and how even simple acts of connection can change the course of a life. Callings explores how these bright and resilient individuals found themselves and each other during oppressive times. In an era when the government attempted to quash their right to love, this group’s sheer existence was an act of resistance and joy.

Absolutely amazing! This is one of the most profound pieces I have seen in
