Fall Photos: Becca Blackwell: They, Themself and Schmerm

On Friday, October 5, 2018 New York City-based trans actor Becca Blackwell performed part classic standup comedy special, part teen zine vomit confessional, They, Themself and Schmerm (2015). The performance was a disturbingly hilarious personal tale of being adopted into a Midwestern religious family, trained to be a girl, molested, and plagued by the question, “How do I become a man and do I even want that?” The Connecticut premiere of this one-person show engaged in loving confrontation with the audience, asking what it truly means to be authentic.
