I.D. by Heaton Wilson


‘There’s always been men and women, and – well – people who sort of get lost in the middle somewhere …’
‘I.D.’ , a powerful and poignant play about gender and identity that has a message for everyone about the importance of finding our selves.
It opens with a music video, then switches to the stage to tell the story of Ian and how his transition impacts the lives of people around him, especially his loving and supportive mum, Elaine, and her close friends Gemma and Keith.
It turns out that loud, sporty Keith is asking questions about his own identity, and he turns to his godson Ian for advice…
