As we are about to watch these United States pass into the hands of a fascist demagogue who will likely attempt to roll back historic gains for minorities of every kind, let us take a moment and celebrate the, “… rich and diverse experiences within the transgender community.”
Starting tomorrow, the American Repertory Theater here in Cambridge, MA is producing Trans Scripts, Part 1: The Women. This is the US premier of a show that won a Fringe First Award for new writing at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. And it even got the following praise from the Boston Herald:
Here’s where you come in. The presales for this show are not where they should be. I know there’s a lot going on in the world right now. I know there is a lot happening on Friday, but what the cast, crew, playwrights, and the A.R.T. have to say in this show is important, especially in light of what is happening on Friday.
So, if you are in the greater Boston area and are interested in a night of really good theatre, this is for you. Also? I have a discount code for you, because of course I do. If you go to the website, linked above but also here, you can get $10 off the price of your ticket with the code SHARE10.
That’s it. A great night out at the theatre, $10 off your ticket, and you can not only show support for the trans community, you can show the Oompah Loompah In Chief that even if he sits in the Oval Office that we won’t let him destroy the progress we’ve made and the support and love we have for our fellow humans.
