Come As You Are 2017

When did you come out as male? Or female? For Come As You Are, CPT welcomes a host of gender-anarchists with more questions than answers, as we confront (and solve?) all the world’s issues regarding female, male, between and beyond. It’s not going to be pretty – but it might just be beautiful.

In the last few years, progressive thinking about gender has gone mainstream, and understanding has developed of gender as infinite variety. More and more individuals are reclaiming the right to define their genders, their bodies, their selves.  Some have called this “the ultimate forum for self-expression”, some “the next civil rights frontier”. Either way, it’s a destabilising and liberating cultural change.

Come join us at CPT as we interrogate and celebrate gender from cis to trans, from binary to beyond.

Come As You Are will be headlined by Bullish by Milk Presents commissioned by CPT and supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation.

Full programme will be announced on Wed 28 June. Stay tuned!

Commissioned by CPT. A lyrical new play exploring trans and non-binary identity through the lens of greek mythology. Cheeky, raucous and irreverent.
