    Real, Mad World is a brilliant piece of new writing following the joys, heartbreaks and absurdities of trans life. Laura, transgender woman and playwright, wants to be a mother more than anything. Faced by the children that she cannot bear, she writes herself into another life with a womb, cisgender husband and kids. But Lindsay, Laura’s partner, is waiting at home with a glass of wine and plans for Trans Revolution Now.

    Following critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe, Real, Mad World has a two-day run at the Portland Arms, Cambridge.
