Paul Capsis in the house!

We had our first taste of celebrity at KXT last night, as Paul Capsis joined the post-show panel for the play in development, Kin. The play is about a trans-woman returning home to visit her father on his deathbed. But the reunion sets family members scratching at old wounds...

Vibrant post-show discussion ensued, led by the freakin' fabulous Natasha Io - was the trans character "made palatable" for the general public? Can a cis-gender man play a trans-gender woman? Who has the right to tell these stories? And how do trans-women manage to strut so damn good in stilettos?

(The answer, by the way? Years of practice!) Natasha and splendid company - kicking down the doors!
