With the success of last year's Transluminate short play festival, the Q Collective looks to make the celebration of non-binary/transgender plays and people an annual event. The second edition, Transluminate 2020, features five new short plays. Zach Barryte and Rachel Bowens-Rubin's "Another Kin" is about a human who wants to transform into a different species but is undecided about which to choose; with the aid of a spaceship, the person travels the galaxy in search of the ideal new species. "Transcodicil," by Peter Dakutis, is about transgender couple Joe and Shawna. Joe is carrying their baby, a fact that may stop him from receiving his inheritance because of a codicil added to his aunt's will at the behest of Joe's transphobic mother. Transluminate 2020 takes place at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and at 4 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (February 27 to March 1) at the Chapel (6238 Alexander Drive; www.theqcollective.theater). Tickets are $20 to $25, but the Thursday night performance is pay-what-you-can.
