The world premiere of Pomegranate tells the story of the endurance of love over time. Suli & Cassia fall in love during their initiation into the Dionysian Mysteries in ancient Pompeii in 79 CE. When Vesuvius erupts their love is held in time until we meet the couple again in 1984 at the Fly by Night, a downtown Toronto lesbian bar. Reincarnated as Cass & Suzie, the lovers face the challenge of Suzie coming out to her refugee family. Another separation sends the story spiralling back to the ruins of Pompeii where the two young lovers must rely on the power of memory to ignite their passion once again.
