In Dragonfly, running March 14-24 in Winnipeg, Lara Rae has written a play for anyone interested in gender identity, trans experience, theatre, poetry and storytelling.

ABOUT THE PLAY

Dragonfly tells the raw and heartfelt story of Lara Rae’s half century long (and counting) gender odyssey. In this original and poetic new work, Lara Rae tells the raw and heartfelt story of her half century long (and counting) gender odyssey. Two actors, one male, one female, illuminate the inner life of a trans woman from her Scottish childhood in the 1960’s to the present day.

Matching our inside to our outside is always hard. For trans people it’s often a matter of life and death. Stripping away the visual cues that both define and imprison transgender people, Dragonfly is a call to all of us to forge creativity from chaos.

A Note on Content: Dragonfly is an autobiographical, poetic journey that uses language, memory and storytelling as tools to explore the writer’s  life.  There are mature themes such as substance abuse, addiction, suicide and  sexual violence. The content can be strong and evocative.
