MK Festival Fringe: Trailer Trash
MK Festival Fringe:
The Play’s The Thing presents Mike Elliston’s Trailer Trash
Thursday 14 July / 8pm / £12 (£10 concessions)
The Play’s The Thing Theatre Company presents Trailer Trash, a two hander drama which deals sensitively with transgender.
Frankie and Shyanne live their lives as if they’re the stars of their very own movie – they just don’t know it. It’s a buddy movie without the popcorn, a road trip without a car. Playing against type and exploring the American Dream, sexual exploitation and gender identity, Trailer Trash is a fierce comedy that embraces the young and feisty Frankie, a waitress in a backwater diner who hates her job, her body and longs to be a man, and an ageing Afro-American stripper, Shyanne, who dreams of becoming a star in Las Vegas but who has lived too long with a lifetime of regrets.
