Funny, powerful and transgressive, Sodom refigures the classic biblical tale of Lot, using it to examine the dangers of being different in a rigid world. Claire Dowie reveals that, in fact, everyone in Sodom, apart from Lot and his wife, is gay.

Dowie then translates the morality of the biblical story to examine the persecution of a distrusted commune in the modern day.

Sodom shows that society’s fear of the Other translates across the millennia.
