Ann-Sofie Öman on If You Want Bigger Yorkshire Puddings You Need A Bigger Tin by Lucy Hutson

It's such a privilege to see performances like the one Lucy Hutson offered us at the Glej Theatre. Without any kind of hesitation or embarrassment she told us a lot about herself and her life as a young man in a woman's body. Now we know what it's like when she wants to buy boxer shorts and discovers that there are no boxer shorts in her size at the men's department. She has to go to the children's department. We also know that her body is a woman's body in every aspect, because she showed us in detail.
And we also know that she has a wonderful mother, who seems to have accepted her just the way she is. I believe that her uncomplicated love for her daughter is the foundation for her trust in the audience, for her trust in herself. That is beautiful.
