This wonderful new work is written and performed by Maureen Muldoon, an actress who presents a very heartfelt, touching and often hilarious monologue that goes back and forth in time but is always fascinating and uplifting. The show is directed by Megan Wells, who helps this talented actress realize her authentic voice.
Muldoon has an impressive range. She's expressive, with a level of intimacy that makes you almost feel she's talking directly to you. Frank, seemingly effortless flow of dialogue that makes up this brave piece of dramatic work, which is an hour-long exploration of the outcomes when a child changes gender.
Muldoon, an inspirational speaker, storyteller, and Hollywood actress for several decades, has no difficulty connecting with the audience in this intimate performance space. She's quirky and amusing, often sharing difficult stories from her background.
Trans-Paret Love (formally: Big Giant Love), a dynamic solo performance by Maureen Muldoon, is strongly performed and directed. I was expecting this autobiographical work to be ponderous and sad but its not. Its full of humor and warmth while showing the resilience and strength of the human spirit. Doug Deuchler, OakPark.com
