About the Show Less...

The tale of the world's most notorious lover - if she were female. Read More >

The year is 1755 and a strange series of events has broken out across Europe. In Flanders, bakers’ bread rises without yeast; in Padua, a church service is interrupted as the entire female congregation goes into labour; in Cirencester, several magistrates are seen cavorting naked on St Swithins Day. Could Casanova be the cause of these strange goings-on?

This fresh take on the story of the infamous lover turns Casanova into a woman.
