Todd in Venice
Sofia Chapman
Todd in Venice is a sparklingly playful script, full of linguistic acrobatics and sexual intrigue, where gender is as fluid as the reality of the city in which it is set. Inspired by Thomas Mann's Der Tod in Venedig (Death in Venice), Sofia Chapman takes her readers on a guided tour of Venice and humanity, by turns poignant, funny, provocative, and joyful.

Todd in Venice premiered in a shortened form at Gasworks Arts Park ‘Playtime’ development program on St Agnes’ night, Midsumma Festival 2016. It opened in its full version in February 2017 for the Midsumma Festival of that year.

Warmly received by audiences at its opening, Todd in Venice is a richly rewarding play to read, allowing a full appreciation of the skilful layering of meaning and language. Truly a delight!
