This roller coaster of a play will have you crying one minute then howling with laughter a few minutes later.

Josh and Isabella were childhood sweethearts who were meant to be together forever. But now Isabella has become Dean.

Every drama teacher should look at putting this on in their school, as it will help students, staff and their audience to understand the issues faced by young transgender people.

The funniest scene is watching representation of the school’s “leadership team” as usual putting their foot in it.

Look out for Pronoun at your local youth theatre or catch it at the National Theatre in July.

If it is performed half as well as it was in Leeds last week, it will be well worth the trip.
