Paris, 1928. The 22-year-old Samuel Beckett is introduced to the notorious novelist James Joyce and his family, and soon becomes like a new son in the household. He finds himself drawn to Joyce's gifted but troubled daughter Lucia.
What does Calico stand for? Calico is the coarse cotton wrapping of the mattress you lie on. It can also be the body restraints when you are sectioned off to an asylum. Michael Hastings has written a carefully researched but strange love story on the edge of sanity. The play is about the epic nature of love in the great tradition of Tennessee Williams and Eugene O'Neill.
