‘I look over at you. You’re like a statue.
But not a statue. Not rock, nor chained to a rock. Flesh. Blood. Bone’.
In modern London, two girls meet under a starry sky. In ancient Ethiopia, a hero saves a princess, chained to a rock. Somewhere not quite either, first love meets its match.
Andromeda by Hannah Greenstreet reimagines a lost play, constellating ancient fragments with a contemporary queer love story. This exploration of the stories we tell each other asks what happens when a young woman falls for someone unexpected, and how to feel proud when the world tells us not to be.
What do you do when you’re stuck between a myth and a hard place?
