|A gutsy transgender one-person theatre, magical animation, multimedia, comedy & movement show. This morning I lost my homework and the dog ate my gender. Other-wise is a letter to Sunny Drake’s family come to life on stage, exposing his emotions and experiences as a transgender person. Animated creatures whisk us into worlds of magic as Sunny explores boy tits, learning to fly and getting comfortable with contradictions. As funny as it is moving, Other-wise is a testament to the courage it takes to be true to oneself.
Warning: you will only understand this show if you are human & born on planet earth. If you’ve ever tried to fit into other people’s expectations or been worried someone wouldn’t understand or be proud of you, then this story is also about you. ASL or accessibility queries: www.sunnydrake.com
