Imperfect Gentlemen

February 28 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

A one-person show about how one family reacts when their father comes out as a transgender woman in the 1980s.

The Arts at Marks Garage presents the Hawaiʻi Premiere of “Imperfect Gentlemen,” a story-theater performance by Ben Moffat on Friday, February 28 & Saturday, February 29 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, March 1 at 2 pm. Tickets are $25 General Admission and $20 for Students and Seniors. “Imperfect Gentlemen” is a one-person show about how one family reacts when their father comes out as a transgender woman in the 1980s.

“Imperfect Gentlemen” is a creation of Ben Moffat and Bradley Wayne Smith and is performed by Ben Moffat. The work is based on events from Moffat’s life. He plays multiple characters throughout the production, revealing each character’s reactions to the change impacting the family. The show explores the forces that shape our identities, and the plasticity and durability of personality.

“Imperfect Gentlemen” is performed in a unique style that blends storytelling with theatrical elements such as costumes, props, and projections of family photos. “Imperfect Gentlemen” premiered in Madison, WI on March 9, 2019 under the auspices of Proud Theater, a company dedicated to performing the stories of LGBTQIA youth.

Box office opens 1/2-hour prior to the show start time.
