Edinburgh Fringe hit 52 Monologues for Young Transsexuals will transfer to London's Soho Theatre later this year. A raucously camp cabaret that dives into the reality of life as a trans woman, the 60-minute piece will run March 4 through 16.
Starring Laurie Ward and Charli Cowgill, the collection of monologues was inspired by verbatim interviews with a wide variety of trans women about romance, sex, and the relationship between the mind and the body.
Said Ward, "We are so beyond excited to be bringing our twisted little baby to Soho theatre. It’s been a CRAZY year—from making work together as students in a church cellar to now presenting that same work at such an incredible theatre. The most exciting thing remains that we will invite more and more people into our strange and twisted hot-pink universe. We hope people will emerge feeling less alone, or like they have learned, in the words of Madonna, 'What it Feels Like for a Girl'"
52 Monologues for Young Transsexuals is an 18+ affair. Compiled and written by Ward and Cowgill, the production is directed by Ilona Sell, with movement direction by Naissa Bjørn. The stage manager is Daze Corder, and the technical director and operator is Ed De'Ath. This production is produced by Bronagh Leneghan.
