    Event description

    It's Alive!! is Genderfucked Production's experimental laboratory for transgender and nonbinary playwrights to develop their new creations.  The playwright has the opportunity to workshop their play with a director, cast, and dramaturg.  This event gives you the opportunity to see the work rise and take its first steps as a staged reading, and discuss it with its creators.

    For the inaugural workshop cycle presents The Chain by Jesse Robkin: 

    Isabelle is a pretty ordinary transgender girl: she has dreams of becoming a dancer, she suffers from depression and body image issues, and she has a family who just doesn't "get" her. Oh, and she's spent her entire life naked and chained to the wall by her pelvis. This allegory for gender dysphoria and visible transphobia is an absurdist twist on the classic American living room drama. 

    An audience talkback will follow the reading.  

    The venue is on the ground floor and will take place in a dog hotel, however no dogs will be present during the performance and air filters will be used to minimize allergens. Seating is first come first served. If you are unable to stand or sit on the floor for the length of the event (2.5 hours), please make note of this in your ticket order and we will happily reserve a seat for you.

    For the safety of our cast, we ask that audience members wear facemasks for the duration of the event.

    Content Disclosure Information: as the play is currently being workshopped, we cannot provide a full disclosure on charged or sensitive material as of yet. A content disclosure will be sent to ticket holders and updated on our event page as soon as we have one. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to producer Reg Linn (
