Some people think that the Twin Cities are a frozen tundra that is completely uninhabitable. Since yesterday was our first 60 degree day since November, sometimes I agree with them. This has been an unusual spring for us. Last week was supposed to be the MN T-Girls monthly outing, but a very powerful blizzard caused me to cancel our plans. I was disappointed as it sounded like a fun event, but the event itself was cancelled, too. However I’m happy we were able to do something that was just as fun. Yesterday the sun shone, the snow melted, and people were out enjoying the day. I spent the afternoon shopping and getting a makeover by Corrie at Midwest Makeup.
Last year we went to a play at the Phoenix Theater that was put on by the Uprising Theater group. I was excited to see that they were doing a production titled ‘Twisted Death’. The description for the production reads:
Pam and Ryan couldn’t be more different. He is a young transgender man and she is an older conservative woman but when they are both diagnosed with cancer their lives intersect in ways that neither of them could have ever imagined.
This world premiere of a new work explores questions of identity, relationships, our health care system, and who has control over your body and life.
It sounds rather dark and serious and it does take on some pretty heavy themes however there are some genuine moments of brevity and tenderness. It was a wonderful evening.
It was just a trio since the event was planned at kind of the last minute but I was glad to see another play en femme.
