Important Award-Winning Theatre: “Rotterdam”

13 Jan

It is not often that we, as parents, have the opportunity to glimpse the reality of our adult transgender children; to experience some of the overwhelming feelings, fears, and challenges that they face as they find and accept themselves and come out to us. More often than not, we are (and understandably so) too enmeshed in our own journey (so full of our own dismay, fear, disappointments, and maybe even anger) that we cannot glimpse our child’s vantage point. This play can gift us with this experience!

Now playing through January 28th at the Skylight Theatre Company in Los Angeles, is Rotterdam. This production is the 2017 Olivier Award Winner and winner of The LA Times Critics Choice!  If that wasn’t enough of a pull for you, consider these stage talks held after the Sunday matinee performances:

January 14th: In G-d’s Image: Transgender People of Faith

January 21st: Transgender Across Generations

January 28th: MOTHERS OF TRANSGENDER CHILDREN (is this meant for us, or what?!)

 

If you are in the LA area, I hope you will make the time to have this experience!
