Competition: Win tickets to San Domino at Tristan Bates Theatre

“Mussolini never killed people, just sent them to holiday camps” – Silvio Berlusconi

San Domino – A Musical Drama

The the story of men sentenced to five years confinement for degeneracy, San Domino is a poignant and darkly comic musical drama based on the reality of Mussolini’s persecution of homosexuals.

One night in 1939, Carlo, Claudio and friends are arrested in Catania.

Condemned without any trial, they arrive on San Domino: a prison island solely for gay men.  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 whatever kind of life they may be trying to build, in the background war is looming.

Actor-musicians conjure up an intimate tragi-comic world of love, loss and the struggle just to survive.
