Very wonderful drama - how I wish the BBC would issue a DVD
A very beautiful piece about a young man coming to terms with his trans-gendered state. Relatively authentic and sympathetic in its treatment of trans-gendered people - it would be a long time before anything as good was done again. The final sequence where the central character finally finds himself and is able to hit back at his tormentors at work was wonderful. How I wish the BBC would issue a DVD of this. I'd love to see it again - it was a play which deeply influenced my own life.
This was a very radical piece at the time. Despite a few sensationalised pieces about the world of trans-gendered people most were based on little knowledge. Even Solom appeared to be quite authentic and I recall it was based ( it was claimed ) on a real transsexuals experiences before coming out.
