You’ve Changed is billed as the “hilarious and heartbreaking” story of Kate O’Donnell’s own transition.Advertisement
Going back in time to the 1930s, Kate transforms live on stage from Fred Astaire to Ginger Rogers using song, dance, hard won wit and wisdom. Kate draws comparisons between her transition experience 15 years ago, and the antiquated views of the thirties.

A promotional statement said: “You’ve Changed shines a light on the ins, outs, ups and downs of transitioning. Challenging the idea that genitals equal gender, Kate bares all on stage, questioning whether, where gender is concerned, we are still stuck in the dark ages. With no rulebook, Kate explains,
sometimes you just have to write your own.
“Kate’s changed: that’s clear, but what she really wants to know is, have you?”
You’ve Changed, which enjoyed a critically acclaimed UK tour in 2017, is a Trans Creative production. Based in Manchester, Trans Creative is a transgender-led theatre company, increasing the visibility and positive representation of transgender people allowing them to tell their own stories through art, advocacy and education.
