Galatea is a trans love story set against the backdrop of a climate crisis. Loosely based on John Lyly’s 1585 play Gallathea, Galatea tells the story of two young women from a village threatened with flooding who escape to the nearby woods disguised as boys and fall in love.

Presented in collaboration with Red Bull Theater, Galatea is written by WP Playwrights Lab Alum MJ Kaufman (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, How to Live on Earth), and directed by Will Davis (India Pale Ale, Men on Boats). The cast includes Grammy Award winner Ty Defoe, Jo Lampert (Hundred Days, Joan of Arc), Eve Lindley (AMC’s Dispatches from Elsewhere), Aneesh Sheth (Netflix’s Jessica Jones), Futaba Shioda (Rent 20th Anniversary tour),and TL Thompson (Is This a Room).
