By Tobias K. Davis
Following in the footsteps of Eve Ensler's Vagina Monologues comes The Naked I: Monologues from Beyond the Binary by award-winning transgender female-to-male (FTM) playwright, Tobias K. Davis. Not willing to stop at discussing women's vaginas, The Naked I explores the bodies and experiences of transgender, gender-queer, and intersex individuals. The play, which includes monologues, duologues, and short sketches, shares stories about men with vaginas and women with penises, women born without vaginas, and a multitude of other differently-gendered people exploring their bodies and dissecting society's assumptions. Tender and heart wrenching, deeply funny and erotic, Davis takes the idea of a monologue-based play to a new level and boldly explains and explores the land beyond 'male' and 'female'.
