No, Alice, I don’t want to become a man... I just want to stop trying to be a woman.

It’s New Year in Rotterdam, and Alice has finally plucked up the courage to email her parents and tell them she’s gay. But before she can hit send, her partner Fiona tells her he was born in the wrong body and wants to start living as a man named Adrian

Now as Adrian starts his transition, Alice must face a question she never thought she’d ask… does this mean she's straight?

The bittersweet comedy about gender, first seen at Theatre503 in 2015, is back in London after an off-Broadway run. All cast reprise their original roles.

Ages 14+

(Reviews from 503 and Trafalgar Studios)



 

Arts [Fringe]

“Sharply observed, moving... funny... Alice and Adrian are exceptionally drawn and the actors responsible are utterly convincing.”

Lucinda Everett (What's On Stage, Telegraph)

“Sweet, heartfelt and funny new play about gender, identity and love. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Smartly observed and very funny... A warm and emotionally intelligent piece. ”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Wonderful characters... McCarthy and Martine... put in two powerful performances... Warm, witty and wise. ”

Tim Bano (The Stage, Time Out)

“A satisfyingly tangled situation, brilliantly and humorously observed, and told in a well-structured and exciting way. ”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“A play consumed by transition... It’s all a bit As You Like It, set in Ikea. In the best possible sense. ”

Kate Maltby (The Times)

“Brittain handles complex issues with great honesty and thoughtfulness [and] a refreshing amount of wit... Compelling. ”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“A very good romantic comedy indeed, full of laughs and sadness and knotty ideas that it untangles with enormous empathy.”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)

“Often very funny, engaging and sharply observant about human nature... Plenty to enjoy. ”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Amiable, if superficial... A sitcom tone makes a hefty issue immediately accessible, at the cost of complexity and credibility. ”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)
