WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Part classic standup comedy special and part teen zine vomit confessional, They, Themself and Schmerm is Becca's disturbingly hilarious personal tale of being adopted into a religious Midwestern family, trained to be a girl, molested, and plagued by the question, "How do I become a man, and do I even want that?" Becca engages in loving confrontation with the audience, asking what it truly means to be authentic in these meat carcasses.
Becca is a New York City-based trans actor, performer, and writer. Existing between genders and preferring the pronoun "they," Blackwell works collaboratively with playwrights and directors to expand our sense of personhood and the body through performance.
