A trans male journey told entirely through the impressions of everyone around him in this virtuosic and poetic piece, originally developed in 2012 as part of InterAct's Beyond the Frame Festival. Playwright and performer Mashuq Mushtaq Deen inhabits every character - from his bewildered American girlfriend to his traditional Muslim family - each trying to understand gender transition by their own terms. Funny, intimate, and deeply moving, Draw the Circle is about survival, transition, and the difficulties that sometimes surround unconditional love.
Written and performed by Mashuq Mushtaq Deen
