★★★★★ “a magnificent tapestry of gender expectations…a digital masterpiece” Feminist Fringe
With the growth of social media, trans people all over the world are connecting – however, there’s a huge gap in people’s understanding about the issues being talked about. In this show, Edalia plays several characters, leading the audience through a mixture of comic and serious situations. They say: “I grew up in a town where if you’re trans you don’t speak up. You keep your head down and you keep out of sight. I wrote this show for places like that, where even just being visible is an act of rebellion.”
“Head-spinning, joyful, painful, funny. It’s a blast from and to the heart” Chris Thorpe
