Talking about their upcoming World Premiere
Standards of Care by Tobias K. Davis and directed by Claire Avitabile
Meet David and Jason - two transgender female-to-males (FTMs) trying to figure out their lives. When they're both in need of support the most, David from his gender therapist, and Jason from his mother, they find that their support systems are one and the same: Nancy! What will happen when Nancy's two worlds collide. Standards of Care is humorous and honest, serious and sexy and without a doubt a ground-breaking new work
that is not to be missed.
