They, Themself and Schmerm
Written and Performed by Becca Blackwell

 

Part classic standup comedy special, part teen zine vomit confessional, They, Themself and Schmerm is Becca’s disturbingly hilarious personal tale of being adopted into a Midwestern religious family, trained to be a girl, molested, and plagued by the question, “How do I become a man and do I even want that?” Becca engages in loving confrontation with the audience, asking what it truly means to be authentic in these meat carcasses.

A New York-based trans actor, performer, and writer, Becca exists between genders and works collaboratively with playwrights and directors to expand our sense of personhood and the body through performance. “The audience emerged from the theater with a greater awareness of a sociocultural transformation underway…from confusion to denial, to reconciliation to who-the-****-cares-let-the-love-in…” (Bomb Magazine)

Contains adult language and frank discussion of gender and sexuality.
