This is the story of Lili Elbe, the world’s first known trans woman to undergo full realignment, which is based on her 1930s diaries. The play tells of the emotional journey Lili undergoes whilst coping with her new life as a transwoman, and her adjustment back into her former life as an established and well-known painter. The show has been devised by an entire trans cast from a series of workshop sessions. All the roles will be performed by members of the company who identify themselves as trans. The company wanted to examine the challenges of living as a trans person, and demonstrate how important it is for trans people today to feel they can play an engaging and positive role in all aspects of society.
