"If I have to change to be loved, it doesn't feel like love." Plagued with concerns over new haircuts, the loss of virginity and passing exams, Burbank isn't that different from your typical high school student, except they -- a "gender-neutral singular personal pronoun" -- also have to worry about whether or not to take the estrogen that doctors keep prescribing. You see, Burbank was born neither biologically male nor female, and doesn't identify as either "he" or "she." After Burbank strikes up a rapport with a sympathetic Biology teacher, their perspective on the world grows far beyond the confines of this conservative community they call home. But the boundaries of this budding friendship will be tested when Burbank makes a very uncomfortable request in the wake of their ruined social standing. A Singular They makes its world premiere in this Blank Theatre Company production in Hollywood.
