"Because trans people are f-ing hot. And working this out felt like I'd unlocked some sort of magic portal..."
Bette in Happy Meal
Tabby Lamb wrote Happy Meal to enable two trans characters to recognise that they were born in exactly the right bodies. This deeply human thought has never before been said in a play, and the success of Happy Meal is a potent reminder of the power of untold stories to capture hearts and minds.
Theatre Queers was a free workshop that accompanied the 2022 tour of Happy Meal for queer writers of all experiences!
We are delighted to present three of these monologues filmed at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry and performed by the sensational Allie Daniel (she/her).
