Collect of the Day

Almighty God,

In Christ you make all things new:

transform the poverty of our nature

by the riches of your grace,

and in the renewal of our lives

make known your heavenly glory;

through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

Based on real stories, Trans-Script follows six characters over the course of a few months as they adapt to changes and find new truths about themselves. The stories and characters of Trans-Script pose an essential question: “Is love enough?”

Trans-Script is an original 50-minute play, written by Rosemary Nolan and Eleanor Crowder, that explores love and relationships in the context of transgender experiences. Both evening performances will be followed by a moderated audience-cast talkback.

Content suitable for ages 12+

Tickets: $23/ea., online and in person, from The Gladstone Box Office.

Don’t miss out on this last opportunity to see Trans-Script. Get your tickets today!
