    You're a man and you want to become a woman? The Islamic Republic of Iran can help.

    Plastic tells the story of a man who wants to become a woman. It explores the creation of gender identity and how the law supports desire, in a dynamic and stylish piece of contemporary theatre. The audience are invited to experience a new world through the performance of a skilled and tightly choreographed company, innovative film and sound, and a team of architectural and theatre design specialists.

    Mehrdad Seyf brings an anarchic surrealist humour to these private and political moments where religion, identity, love, sex and gender roles culminate in a world shaped by plastic surgery, mediated images and the drive to be a domestic goddess.

    Presented in the subterranean arches of the Pleasance UnderGrand, Plastic is a unique blend of visual, humour and song, presented to the Fringe for the first time.

    'A gorgeous-looking piece of serious fun' (The Persian Revolution, The Herald)
