The Pink UnicornEXTENDED: MAR 5-18 Written by Elise Forier Edie
Directed by M. Bevin O'Gara
Featuring Stacy Fischer
At SpeakEasy, we believe theatre is just the beginning of the conversation. That is why, after viewing The Pink Unicorn, you will find a pre-recorded panel discussion hosted by writer, coach, and speaker Taj M. Smith.
This panel, entitled “Learning the Impact of Language”, explores the issues of the play from the perspective of some transgender and nonbinary individuals. The panelists for this panel include:
Taj M. Smith (he/him)
Katie Omberg (she/they)
Mx. Chris Paige (they/them)
Leo Austin-Spooner (he/they)
We hope you will stick around after the performance and hear what these panelists have to say!
The Pink Unicorn explores a lot of complex topics surrounding gender – but an 80-minute performance can only be the beginning of the conversation. In addition to the panel following the performance, we hope you’ll visit our Additional Reading & Resources page as a jumping-off point for further learning about breaking through the gender binary.
Play Discussion Club
For our sixth series of SpeakEasy’s Play Discussion Club, and following our virtual production of The Pink Unicorn by Elise Forier Edie, we will be reading three plays by transgender, nonbinary, and two-spirit playwrights.
We will be reading MJ Kaufman’s Sensitive Guys on March 11, M Sloth Levine’s The Interrobangers on March 18, and Ty Defoe’s Firebird Tattoo on March 25. To learn more about these plays, or to sign-up for a session, visit our Play Discussion Club page.
