They, Themselves, and Sherm
by Rude Mechs

Nov. 11 - Nov. 12, 2019

Part classic standup comedy special, part teen zine vomit confessional, They, Themself and Schmerm is Becca’s disturbingly hilarious personal tale of being adopted into a Midwestern religious family, trained to be a girl, molested, and plagued by the question, “How do I become a man and do I even want that?” Becca engages in loving confrontation with the audience, asking what it truly means to be authentic in these meat carcasses.
Written and performed by Becca Blackwell
Developed with Ellie Heyman
In collaboration with Jill Pangallo and Jess Barbagallo

“It would have taken me two years of focus groups to make being molested that funny.” —Young Jean Lee

It takes a village. This project is presented by Rude Mechs, along with Fusebox Festival, Paul Bonin-Rodriguez, and the University of Texas at Austin’s LGBTQ Studies and Performance as Public Practice Programs.
