Writer and storyteller Ivan Coyote and musician and author Rae Spoon join forces in Surrey this Friday and Saturday for their new show Gender Failure.

Both are transgendered artists who mix storytelling, music, video and animation to show the audience how it feels when you don’t conform to gender stereotypes in a world that sees only male and female roles.

Gender Failure takes place in the Surrey Arts Centre’s Studio Theatre Feb. 7 and 8 at 8 p.m. Due to strong language and intimate moments, the show is not suitable for children under 15.

Tickets are $35 for adults, $30 for seniors and students and $10 for youth ages 15-24, available at tickets.surrey.ca or 604-501-5566.
