Set against the controversy around transgender representations in media, four transgender artists explore authenticity in stage and screen through their own diverse experiences and viewpoints.
Our story follows four trans* women and their professional lives during and after their participation in the groundbreaking production, “Trans Scripts, Part 1: The Women”, written by Paul Lucas and produced by the American Repertory Theater. The play was scripted from more than 75 interviews conducted with transgender women around the world, with the goal of creating the most authentic representations ever put on the stage.
As these engaging, funny and talented women navigate their respective careers in various forms of media, audiences will be given the opportunity to get to know them in an intimate and perhaps unexpected way.
