Becca Blackwell Presents: They, Themself and Schmerm

Part classic standup comedy special, part teen zine vomit confessional. They, Themself and Schmerm is Becca Blackwell’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?” Becca engages in loving confrontation with the audience, asking what it truly means to be authentic in these meat carcasses. Becca Blackwell is a NYC based trans actor, performer and writer. Existing between genders, and preferring the pronoun “they,” Blackwell works collaboratively with playwrights and directors to expand our sense of personhood and the body through performance. Some of their collaborations have been with Young Jean Lee, Half Straddle, Jennifer Miller’s Circus Amok, Richard Maxwell, Sharon Hayes, Theater of the Two Headed Calf and Lisa D’Amour.

Three Weddings and a Statement

Two people fall in love, decide to spend their lives together, find an officiant, stand under a Chuppah to take their vows — and then celebrate their joy. Except in Israel, it’s not that simple. You are cordially invited to a very special Triple Wedding; a celebration not only of love and commitment but of the equality of all Jews. In Temple Emanu-El’s historic sanctuary, prominent rabbis representing Judaism’s different movements will join in matrimony three Israeli couples who are deprived of the right to marry at home because they are either gay, not considered Jews according to Israel’s chief rabbinate, or because they reject the rabbinate’s rigid control over Jewish marriages and divorces. Join us to support them and the cause of religious freedom and equal rights in Israel.
