L Morgan Lee will be playing Laureline Reeves in a reading presentation of Shualee Cook’s new play, Cercle Hermaphroditos at the newly launched National Queer Theatre.
A description of the play:
In 1895 New York, trans man Ambrose Carlton has a plan to beat the restrictive system around him and live as himself as much as possible - to find a bride at "Laureline" Reeves' infamous Cercle Hermaphroditos, a social club for "androgynes" (aka, trans women). Ambrose hopes to find a lady at the club he can legally marry, then live the life expected of them in public while pursuing the life they want in private. But finding the proper match becomes more difficult than he expected, especially after the club is raided by police and the fragile safe place Laureline has created threatens to break apart for good. Based on true historical events
