“Feminine? Masculine? Why can’t we just… be?” 

 

The moment you were born, the doctor announced your gender, and the world put you in a box. And maybe that’s a comfortable box, and you’ll sit there happily for the rest of your life. But maybe it’s not… and what happens then? ‘Be.’ follows three characters trying to break out of their boxes, as they discover what it means to be ‘Her’, ‘Him’ or ‘Them’, in a story intertwined with the authentic collective experiences of over 60 real people.

 

With enchanting music and provocative, poetic storytelling, Greedy Pig Theatre Company’s latest production gives a voice to those made restless by the constraints of gender within our communities, and asks why sometimes it’s so difficult to just…be. 

Genres/themes: Play, Poetic, Multi-rolling, Progressive, Gender

Be is a beautifully crafted piece of theatre, handling a complicated and polarising topic in an emotionally intelligent and respectful way.

The singing, the extended monologues, laughter and passionate sobbing fill the cavernous space at the Loco Klub, adding an extra layer of intimacy between the cast and the audience.
...
The raucous applause at the curtain call is a well-deserved seal of approval from a thoroughly enthralled audience.
