After a highly successful first-run in Vancouver – Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard Productions Society will bring I Am Not a Girl to the stage at Tarragon’s EXTRASPACE, Toronto, June (5th - 9th) 2019. The production stems from a true story that was generously given to Executive Producer William Grant Hubbard with the request that the subject of the story remain anonymous.
I Am Not a Girl tells the unique story of Eric – born into a large family in the 1970’s and assigned female at birth, they spend the first part of their life masquerading as "Erica". When they begin to question their identity, they are propelled on a journey of self-discovery, embarking into a world of drugs, sexual encounters and failed relationships. They finally reach a revelation, they can transition to the gender that they have always truly identified as – male. With this promise and the incredible support of a loving mother, "Erica" faces the physical, emotional and spiritual challenges of transitioning to their authentic self, Eric.
Complementing the production and following the matinee on June 9, MHCPS will also facilitate a special panel exploring discourse around transgender issues today, in Canada.
Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard Productions Society is an Vancouver-based organization dedicated to exploring significant social circumstances and issues affecting the British Columbia community through theatre and film.
