"The small space was nearly filled to capacity and the audience was warmly entertained by a talented cast of two playing multiple roles and very capably directed by the playwright, Theresa Diamond....make plans to see this show, even if the weather does not improve." - Susan Freedner, QonStage.com 01/19/2009

WHAT IF Beckett staged Marat-Sade and all the parts were played by amorous lesbians? Inmates of the Hahns Jopkins psych ward, Nina and Anne rehearse their anti-abortion variety show as Maria from "The Sound of Music" and Founding Father George Washington. Every day at the same time the rehearsal is interrupted by Nina’s trip to the Treatment Room. When their doctors enter to observe, all hell breaks loose.

"...solo show XY(T)...(is) an entertaining, informative foray into gender/sexuality that is well written and performed by Kestryl Cael Lowrey." -SF, QonStage.com 01/19/2009

WITH a simple query, "do YOU have the balls to become a man?" XY(T) delves into questions, contradictions, and characters exploring: TESTOSTERONE. Transgender butch Kestryl Cael was a woman, once upon a time. Now, he is stripping layers of gender, self, sex, and sanity in pursuit of his own masculinity. Combining ethnography, autobiography, a syringe, and a massive pink strap-on, XY(T) charts one queer’s quest for a gender that makes sense. Filled with testosterone and transgression, masculinity and mayhem, XY(T) playfully punctures everything you thought you knew about gender.
