“Absolutely vital.” ✮✮✮✮✮

The Stage

A trans reclamation story, served with a side of fries.

After transphobic slurs — and a hamburger — are thrown at theatre artist Travis Alabanza, a newfound passion is ignited. They became obsessed with hamburgers: How they are made. How they feel and smell. How they travel through the air. How the mayonnaise feels on your skin. 

This show is the climax of that obsession – exploring how trans bodies survive and how, by reclaiming an act of violence, we can address our own complicity. Carving out a place for themselves as one of the UK’s prominent trans voices, Alabanza presents a performance that is timely, unsettling, and powerful.
