A Shark Ate My Penis: A History of Boys Like Me

Laser Webber, trans musician and actor known for his award-winning comedy duo The Doubleclicks, presents a one-person musical about the history of trans men and his own transition! Meet Alan Hart, the first trans man to get gender-confirming surgery (in 1917); Samuel Bundy, whose legend includes a shark, a robbery, and 12 girlfriends; and renowned children’s author JK Rowling, who uses a man’s name for other reasons, probably. These characters will usher Laser through a life of weddings, divorce, lesbianism, and finally, joy.
