two plays on one evening in CT

The second playwright is a friend/coworker-of-friend (I've never met him), and I thought this might be of interest to postqueerians in Hartford, CT or willing to travel there.

From the Charter Oak Cultural Center newsletter:
'On Thursday evening, February 17 at 7:30 we will be presenting two works. The first is a very short, compelling piece by Eve Ensler called
"They Beat the Girl out of My Boy... Or So They Tried" which is a monologue based on the stories and struggles of men who, believing they were born into the wrong bodies, became women.

The second work that evening is a full-length play called "The Naked I: Monologues from Beyond the Binary" by Tobias K. Davis. This piece focuses on the experiences of transgendered and intersexed people, and in the process, educates us about this taboo subject, challenging us to reconsider some of our long-held assumptions about the "other", about gender and sexuality, perhaps even about ourselves. "The Naked I" contains some nudity.

Tickets are $15; $10 for senior and students. Since there is only one performance, we recommend that you order tickets now by calling (860) 249-1207.'

And... Eve Ensler takes on trannies. Hmmm.
