SUMMARY

For Laurie, born biologically female, the frustration of living in the wrong-sex body creates disturbing complications with her long-term friend La Femme, a butch lesbian who enjoys dressing in femme drag.

In her award-winning and cutting-edge play, Dr Terri Power plumbs the depths of female-to-male transition to find laughter, tears, tragedy and enlightenment.
