I'll be directing (and possibly acting in) the Chicago premiere of this new work from playwright Paul Lucas. Seven transgender lives are interwoven in a moving and fascinating tapestry. This staged reading is presented in conjunction with About Face Theatre's "The Bitter Earth" and helps commemorate Transgender Awareness Week.
Trans Scripts first opened in Boston at American Repertory Theatre. This fun video introduces the play and highlights the cast of that original production.
And this video captures audience reactions from the American Repertory Theatre's show.
Much more background on the play can be found on its main website here.
