Extended discussion of dysphoria, references to transphobia, misgendering, momentary physical violence

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.

Selected as the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club 2022 Fringe Play, Real, Mad World is a funny and tender study of how we treat the people we love.
