LESBIAN SPACE CRIME
In August 2019, NASA astronaut Anne McClain was accused of hacking her estranged wife’s bank account from the International Space Station. This was the dawn of space crime, and a new era for queer representation.
Is Anne really a criminal.. or a hero?
Isolated in space, Anne cracks on with being an astronaut but is caught up in a constellation of bad times. Cornered by her colleagues, berated by her boss, and jeopardised by a Gemini (her skank wife).
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 is a comedy with slapdash songs about intergalactic queer dirtbags.
The show was shortlisted for New Diorama’s UNTAPPED Award in 2020 and showcased as part of The Omnibus Theatre’s Engine Room in 2021.
