“A singular sensation!”

– New York Theater Review

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?”  You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll question what bathroom to use.

Becca is an NYC-based trans actor, performer and writer. They, Themself and Schmerm has been presented by The Public Theater: Under the Radar Festival, Abrons Art Center, A.R.T./Oberon, The Wild Project & Duke Univeristy.
