…lots of humour and even more heart…a profound picture — The Charlebois Post
…professional…stylish…with great choreography and very interesting movement pieces dotting its landscape — Mooney on Theatre
The material is frequently fascinating…a brief monologue about an Islamic man sitting for hours in a stall looking for some sort of connection is powerful. And a scene about a trans woman autoworker’s experiences is horrific — NOW magazine

Queer Bathroom Stories (full version)

Four trans monologues from QBS


Queer Bathroom Stories is a play about lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans- and queer experiences in Canada’s public facilities written by Sheila Cavanagh. It is based on interviews conducted for the award winning Queering Bathrooms: Gender, Sexuality and the Hygienic Imagination (2010) book by Cavanagh. The stories open our eyes to the secret sex life of the bathroom and to the gendered politics of the washroom. You will never look at the bathroom the same way after witnessing the tragic and passionate reenactments of life in the can.
