In Transit by Holden Thomas

Our allies at Miners Alley Playhouse presents a 2018 Curious New Voices National
Collective creation In Transit a play & conversation about transgender issues in our world today by Holden Thomas.


“You could try to help me understand it.” When Oliver’s older brother drives the pair to Chicago to pick up testosterone to aid in Oliver’s transition, the siblings get into a weighty discussion on identity. Through open dialogue and family banter, we explore the challenges facing this transgender teen, both physically and emotionally. In Transit answers some of the most sensitive questions on transgender transition, while also challenging the audience to consider the deeply personal questions of identity that many take for granted.


Written during the 2018 Curious New Voices National Collective, a playwriting intensive, In Transit allows an entry point to conversation around LGBTQ+ issues, providing a platform and vocabulary for robust and open dialogue. Following the performance, we will have a facilitated community conversation.


Tickets are free, however reservations are highly recommended. Please visit In Transit at Miners Alley Playhouse  for tickets and more information.
