A TRUE STORY ABOUT HOW REAL LOVE TRANSCENDS ALL DIFFRENCES AND IS AVAILABLE TO ANYONE
A true story about how real love transcends all differences and is Available to anyone.
“My Trans Wife,” a two-woman drama about love, authenticity and transformation, is premiering at the 2019 Hollywood Fringe Festival. Written by Mimi Kmet and Mara Wells and directed by Deborah Pearl (“Getting Ed Laid”).
The play is a true story of transition, written by, and featuring, the two women who are living it: Mara Wells, a trans woman, spent most of her life as male. Mimi Kmet, a straight ciswoman, was raised in a traditional Catholic family. They met, fell in love, and got married. And everything changed. For both of them.
“My Trans Wife” takes the audience through the pain, joys and laughter of their relationship as a trans couple, as Mara struggles with her gender identity and Mimi struggles with letting go of long-held beliefs enough to acknowledge that she could love someone like Mara. It’s this authenticity and commitment that have allowed them to create new realms for love to exist outside of societal norms but completely from the heart.
In today’s “us-versus-them” world, this production seeks to empower others who are “different” and send the message that real love transcends all differences and is available to anyone.
