Trans Scripts is a 100-minute stage play that incorporates verbatim material culled from over 200 hours of interviews with 70 people from around the world who identify on the transgender scale. Its characters range broadly in age, ethnicity, socio-economic status, educational level and gender. The play is currently performed with seven professional actors from New York City.
From the producer of the Edinburgh Fringe First Award-winning What I Heard About Iraq and the Herald Angel Award-winning Taylor Mac comes an exciting new verbatim play about the most important civil rights issue of our generation.
Trans Scripts is also the centerpiece of a larger interdisciplinary, multi-phase, performing arts and education project created to raise awareness of, and demystify, the transgender experience for a broader audience. As part of the project, the play is available as both a stand-alone performance with a talk back, or as part of a residency that can be customized for a wide variety of learning experiences.
The team is in the UK next week to workshop the show in front of live audiences.
Performances will take place in:
Wednesday, 25 June and Thursday, 26 June at 8:00 pm at the Lyric Theatre, 9 Barrack Street, Bridport, Dorset DT6 3LX.
