MC: But while this is not a play about a trans person being trans, "A Little Bit Not Normal" is also not a play about a person who just happens to be trans, like how Nancy is treated as a cool girlfriend who happens to be a vampire hunter. It kind of sits in the middle, like, you know, real life. When a play that involves superheroes and talking cats that date deities reflects real life, it's doing something right. It also comes at an interesting point when there's been a recent growth in trans visibility and awareness. Last Friday was National Trans Day of Remembrance, which has been honored by trans communities since 1998 but has become more public in recent years, especially this year with the rise in reported murders of transgender people, particularly trans women of color. There's also more public figures coming out, more trans people rising to prominence, more dialogue across social media, etc. But it's still something of a taboo, like it probably won't be widely discussed at most Thanksgiving dinners this week, and if it does, it probably won't go so well. I think this is the kind of play that holds well now but will also transition fluidly, so to speak, into the increasingly aware world.
