In Transit
by Holden Thomas
"You could try to help me understand it." When Oliver's older brother drives the pair to Chicago to pick up testosterone to aid in Oliver's transition, the siblings get into a weighty discussion on identity. Through open dialogue and family banter, we explore the challenges facing this transgender teen, both physically and emotionally. In Transit answers some of the most sensitive questions on transgender transition, while also challenging the audience to consider the deeply personal questions of identity that many take for granted.

Written during the 2018 Curious New Voices National Collective, a playwriting intensive, In Transit allows an entry point to conversation around LGBTQ+ issues, providing a platform and vocabulary for robust and open dialogue.
