Bethany Black - (Extra)Ordinary

at Stand 2

Preview 4th Aug. 5th to 28th Aug (bar 15th) at 6pm

Bethany Black is an idiot. She had two years where her life exploded; she got dumped by her fiancée and then things really went downhill; death, illness and a fractured leg followed.

Broken and on the verge of giving up, something extraordinary happened. She got cast in a starring role in Russell T Davies' TV series Cucumber | Banana | Tofu, becoming the first trans person to star as a transgender character in the UK, and first on US broadcast television.

Suddenly she’s making history, entirely by accident. But what happens when this happens and you’re an idiot?
