Not all men are men. Welcome to the movies.

805-4821 is a trans coming out story made out of other stories: a dialogue from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, a half-remembered swim lesson, and an 80,000 word Facebook correspondence. Performed using a hacked overhead projector, Davis Plett invites us to reimagine how we might hold ourselves, and each other, in an age of apocalypse. (
