F2M

February 18, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

As part of their McGillicuddy Humanities Center undergraduate fellowship, Bell Gellis — a triple major in psychology, theatre and women’s, gender, and sexuality — will present a production of Patricia Wettig’s play F2M live in the Cyrus Pavilion Theatre. F2M is a dark comedy following the life of Parker as he navigates parents’ weekend when his not so accepting parents show up on a surprise visit.

The production is a portion of Gellis’s MHC project, which asks, “Is Our Perception of Transphobia Blurred When We Are Confronted With It in a Familial Context?” Supervised by Rosalie Purvis, assistant professor of theatre and English, Gellis’s work interrogates anti-trans-bias, as well as other prejudices and biases, to explore perceptions of transphobia across generations, gender, political affiliation and religion.

This event takes place from Feb. 16–19, with performances at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 16–18 and 2 p.m.on Feb. 18 and 19. It is free and open to the public. For more information, contact mhc@maine.edu.
