A.R.T. of Human Rights: a reading of 'Trans Scripts'
Special events
Monday, November 23, 2015 at 7:30PM
Actors in a post reading talkback with the audience.

Written by Paul Lucas
Directed by Jo Bonney


Presented as part of the series, A.R.T. of Human Rights, a partnership the American Repertory Theater & Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard University, this series of public conversations with leading artists, academics, and activists uses the arts and the humanities to explore some of the most pressing human rights issues of our time.

This will be a reading of Trans Scripts, a verbatim stage play that centers on the lives of six trans women. Their true stories, told in their own words, are honest, funny, moving, insightful, and inspiring. But most of all, they are human, shedding light not on our differences, but on what all people share, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, or physical sex.

Featuring a powerhouse cast of transgender and cisgender* actors, many of whom appeared in the play’s Fringe First Award-winning premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe earlier this year, including transgender icon, actress and activist Calpernia Addams as Sandra; actress and celebrity stylist Jay Knowles as Luna; New York performing legend Bianca Leigh as Tatiana; highly-respected actor and teacher Jodie Lynne McClintock as Josephine; Julia Motyka as Eden; and House of Cards regular Carolyn Michelle Smith as Zakia.


The reading will be followed by a panel discussion.

*A person who identifies as the gender/sex they were assigned at birth.
