THE BIG DEAL
Ive always been a woman.
All this time Ive had a penis and to be fair he never did me any harm. In fact he worked very well, but I’ve waited my whole life to have my own vagina.
This is my first email to you. I hope it doesnt in any way shape your thoughts on what you should do. If there is any chance it might, please dont read it.
It is the night before my operation. I am remarkably calm. Shouldnt I be crying my eyes out or having second thoughts? Shouldnt I be doing something with my penis on his last night on earth? Shouldnt this be a really big deal?
Any pain Im experiencing is in my mind, rather than my body. But, of course, the mind is where we actually live, isnt it?
Anyway, enjoy this, if you can.
Following the recent hit show 565+ at the Ulster Bank Dublin Theatre Festival, and nationwide success with Victor and Gord, Una McKevitt directs this poignant and gritty work-in-progress showing based on letters and emails between two real life friends undergoing male to female gender reassignment.
