Pauline used to be Paul and as far as her father is concerned she still is. Despite her fathers’ inability to accept her as a woman, Pauline visits him every Tuesday to help him out with his laundry and his shopping, She takes the audience with her on her weekly visits ‘come hell or high water’flouting the barbed comments, the battles and the stares wanting quite simply to be his daughter. ‘All quite ordinary, all quite normal’ Sometimes funny, sometimes not, Tuesday At Tescos is an intense, thought provoking journey exploring human perceptions of identity and acceptance that stays with you.
Presented by Tangled Web in collaboration with People Staring.
