"Becoming A Man In 127 EASY Steps" by Scott Turner Schofield
Irreverent and dynamic, graceful and playful, Becoming A Man In 127 EASY Steps engages the deep questions and the locker room jokes about what it means to "become" a man. Moving beyond the transgender narrative that focuses on the experience of transition, Alaskan trans* artist Scott Turner Schofields' stories explore the drama and hilarity of living a new life in the "opposite" gender. "I changed my sex. Now what?" Schofield dances, climbs, hides, and seeks in a delicate choreography of brute strength and beautiful flexibility. The show's Choose Your Own Adventure format invites viewers to decidelivewhich stories they will hear during each performance. Since its Seattle debut in October 2007, Becoming a Man in 127 EASY Steps has been selling out and changing lives at every engagement, in venues of 50 to 300, from Miami to Anchorage and unexpected markets in between.
Scott Turner Schofield is a writer, performer, and educator creating theater about gender and sexuality in the Deep South. He is also a man who was a woman, a lesbian turned straight guy who is often called a fag. Not surprisingly, his work centers on contradictions and comedy. Schofield has been touring his original solo performances to colleges, festivals, and theaters nationwide since 2001. These autobiographical monologues challenge fundamental gender assumptions with stories of searching, embarrassment, pride, and the joy of finding yourself on your own terms.

Performance on 11/10 will be ASL-Interpreted and will be followed by a post-show discussion.
