The Big Deal – Sara Keating

Barnstorm Theatre

Scripted from emails and interviews, The Big Deal is a documentary theatre piece from director Una McKevitt, which presents the stories of two real-life women, Cathy and Deborah, who were born as men. The narrative charts their journey from self-realisation to physical transformation, and their voices are resolutely honest about the spiritual and corporeal trauma of their conditions; their rejection by family and friends, and the intense pain of gender reassignment surgery.
