Mess Up The Mess and Youth Cymru Present


20 – 24 November 2018

Weston Studio

Three transgender actors step out onto a stage. They want you to listen. To tell you how it is. How it is in 2018. When everyone else has an opinion. Hear their truth.

Humanequin is a play about gender, identity and finding your family in the unlikeliest of places. With director Jain Boon and writer Kelly Jones, the actors worked alongside members of TransForm Cymru and students from Radyr Comprehensive school to devise Humanequin. They shared their common and individual stories and experiences to create a performance which educates, challenges and provokes conversation about what it means to be trans in 2018.
