THEY, THEMSELF AND SCHMERM
Written and performed by Becca Blackwell
Directed by and developed with Ellie Heyman

Part standup comedy special, part teen-zine vomit confessional, «They, Themself and Schmerm» is Becca Blackwell's 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?” Blackwell engages in loving confrontation with the audience, asking what it means to be truly authentic beings, manifest in these meat carcasses.
