The 18th century, Prussian lesbian play is on at the Hampstead Theatre throughout February


Debuting its world premiere at the Hampstead Theatre, LINK & MÜLHAHN follows the heartbreaking true(ish) story of 18th century, lesbian couple Anastasius Linck and Catharina MÜlhahn.

Director Ruby Thomas was originally inspired to pursue the story when she was doing some reading in British Library and came across actual trial records about the couple. She says:

“This particular story maybe feels like it speaks to the fact that different genders, sexualities and love stories have always existed and they have been written out of the dominant narrative.”

LGBTQIA activist, Peter Tatchell tweeted after having seen the performance:

Receiving outstanding reviews and praise from press and punters alike, the play will run through February till March 4. Tickets are available online via the Hampstead Theatre and are just £10 for under 30s.
