"Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls " at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre

Tags: Drama, Event
On Saturday November 18th at 2PM, Roseneath Theatre will be holding a reading of their new play Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre.The play follows the story of 9-year-old Fiona who comes out as male-identified Fin. Fiona has always had this feeling – knowing something is different but not knowing what it was or how to say it. Fiona cuts her hair short and asks her family to start using the name Fin. Dad is accepting of the change right away, but Mom doesn’t quite get it at first. Always from a place of good intentions, we see Fin’s family struggle with this change and through the course of the play ultimately begin to accept and embrace Fin for who he is.
