The Pink Unicorn

Starring Tony Winner Alice ripley

Ripley fully inhabits the role, employing a profound command of inflection and mannerism that makes her character engrossingly genuine and conversational; she finds humor in the most unexpected little places.

Directed by Amy E. Jones

“Trisha Lee is a Christian widow living in a conservative Texas town. Her life is suddenly upended when her 14-year-old daughter Jolene announces she is “gender queer” and starting a chapter of the Gay and Straight Alliance at the local high school. In THE PINK UNICORN, Trisha recounts her story about facing a crisis she never saw coming, at a time when transgender people and gender issues weren't even on her radar.”

THE PINK UNICORN was originally produced in Washington by DogTown Theatre in 2013 and has been performed throughout the US and Canada including a run at United Solo Theatre Festival in New York, where Elise Forier Edie won Best Storyteller.
