Trans Scripts, Part I: The Women – Win a Dinner Date Night

Comments 45 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Frank Theatre and Zee Zee Theatre, in association with Firehall Arts Centre, co-present the Canadian premiere of Trans Scripts, Part I: The Women from March 12–21, 2020, at Firehall Arts Centre. The brave and insightful work, sharing real-life stories of transgender women in their own words, is a meditation on the authentic experiences that make every individual unique, while underscoring the shared human spirit that connects us all.

Trans Scripts, Part I: The Women

Where: Firehall Arts Centre (280 East Cordova St, Vancouver)
March 12–21, 2020
Available online now or by calling (604) 689-0926

Trans Scripts, Part I: The Women centres on seven diverse stories — a down-to-earth woman looking to blend in, a glamorous beauty queen, a former small-town mechanic, a formidable ex-dominatrix, a runaway turned activist, a hardened survivor of paternal abuse, and a sexagenarian doctor — as they navigate the intricate complexities and liberating joys of their transgender identities. This work of documentary theatre is “full of warmth and vulnerability” (The Herald) and grounds itself in moments of levity, anguish, strength, and resilience. The play unfolds from tales of early childhood insecurities to adulthood ruminations on sex, surgery, and suicide. 

Performed by seven local transgender women, the play seamlessly weaves an inspirational tale of honesty, vulnerability, and vibrancy on the path to finding one’s true self.
