The Multiverse is Gay

Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh

13 - 15 April 2023

Hop on this joyful rollercoaster, as a new young company of actors performs 'The Multiverse is Gay' and takes you on a wild and playful journey at the Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh!

It’s the last day of school and a raggle-taggle group of friends are bunking off. They break into some fancy private gardens to have a party. In a world that feels like it’s falling apart, they are trying to hold themselves together. Others cast them as the outsiders; the geeks, the queer kids, the school dropouts. But they know they are a community, a family.

Except for Amber. She always feels slightly on the outside of things. Amber’s friends couldn’t be kinder, but something feels out of kilter.  Like she’s looking in on her own life, trying to work out what is wrong.

However, as the garden revels begin, Amber, who has always felt slightly on the outside of their own identity, accidentally stumbles through a portal that launches them in flight across the Multiverse, where they meet an eclectic mix of characters who force them to question who they are and who they want to become. As they tumble through time and space, will they finally find somewhere they belong?
