Matthew explains his process of learning to play a son, a daughter, a brother and a sister, within the precincts of the same character. He discusses the edifying journey through language, science and autobiographical illustration, which allowed him to sit comfortably in playing the understanding that there are as many stories about transition as there are people who experience it. Matthew expresses that he was pleased and reassured by Frantic Assembly’s subtle approach to Mia’s voice, costume, physicality and entry into the play, and applauds how inspiringly switched on to and receptive of the storyline younger audiences proved to be.
