Why See Everything That's Beautiful?

A timely new drama for today's sOCIAL ISSUES

With transgender rights currently under threat, this timely world premiere drama takes a tender look at one family's experience of raising a trans child in a new community. Written by up-and-coming playwright Elyzabeth Gregory Wilder, who previously penned the Osborn Award-winning Gee's Bend, The Furniture of Home and The Flag Maker of Market Street, her newest work is helmed by Ed Decker and has already received positive accolades from the press.

Midwestern parents Luke and Jess have an unusual family; they have decided to relocate their family from their insular community so that their eight year-old transgender child can safely live as a girl, without fear of reprisals and ignorance. Hoping that this move will afford them a fresh start, these dreams are put in peril when an accident at their new home leads Luke to admit the true reason for why the family moved. A sympathetic drama without becoming preachy, this thoughtful play is currently playing a San Francisco's New Conservatory Theatre Center.
