Trisha Lee is a Christian widow living in a conservative Texas town. Her life is suddenly upended when her 14-year-old daughter Jolene announces she is "genderqueer" and starting a chapter of the Gay and Straight Alliance at the local high school. In The Pink Unicorn, Trisha recounts her story about facing a crisis she never saw coming, at a time when transgender people and gender issues weren't even on her radar.

The Pink Unicorn with Alice Ripley was produced Off-Broadway in April 2018 with Out of the Box Theatrics and was later produced and developed for an extended run in collaboration with Nancy Manocherian's, the cell (Artistic Director - Kira Simring).
