In high school in the late 1960’s Martin and Karen were an inseparable duo, though as Martin grew to understand his emerging gay self, their relationship fell away. Why then, 25 years later, does Karen offer herself up as biological mom so that Martin and his partner, Peter can raise their own child? As Martin begins to fantasize his would-be daughter in a parallel universe, AIDS takes root in his community, and his once-trusted world begins to shift. Traversing decades and dimensions, Swimming Circles is a heartfelt take on what it means to look inward and grow up in a time that dramatically changed what it means to be gay.
