Michelle Read / On a House Productions, Ireland


Irish gender recognition laws lead the world in offering acceptance to Irish trans people, but what happens when your husband announces she’s a woman? Set during Marion and Adam’s 25th wedding anniversary, a series of escalating incidents cause Adam to reveal that she is Melanie. Her coming out sends seismic waves through the rest of the family forcing everyone to confront their own identities.

Work-in-progress presentation. In consultation with
Trans Equality Network Ireland.
