Still Point Turning: The Catherine McGregor Story

Sydney Theatre Company presents
STILL POINT TURNING:
THE CATHERINE MCGREGOR STORY
By Priscilla Jackman
Based on interviews with Catherine McGregor

World premiere

A life worth living

This is a vivid theatrical portrayal of one of our country’s most intriguing public figures.

From the age of eight, Catherine McGregor knew she was a woman. But first she would have to live as a man. She played many parts: son, brother, husband, athlete, soldier, speech writer. She worked in professions full of machismo, inside institutions built by men.

Every day was a challenge, and every challenge took its toll. In 2012, aged 56, McGregor faced a turning point: end her life, or transition as a woman.

Drawn directly from countless hours of interviews with McGregor, Still Point Turning tells her story in her own words. It reveals a woman of fierce intellect, passion, incisive humour and profound feeling. It celebrates her tenacity without shying away from her faults. It is the true story of her true self.

Writer/director Priscilla Jackman, in her STC debut, has assembled a magnificent cast, led by Heather Mitchell (Cloud Nine) as Catherine, to bring this moving and timely true story to the stage.

“And I arrived at the same point every trans person does. If I am to live on, it would be as the person I felt myself to be, or I would die.”
Catherine McGregor
