"I am completely mad for Scott Turner Schofield. He is a thrilling, compelling, and downright charming writer and performance artist. And handsome. Did I mention handsome? And smart. Buy this book. Read it.
— Kate Bornstein, author of Hello Cruel World
Homofactus Press proudly announces Two Truths and a Lie,a memoir in the form of three solo plays written and performed by critically-acclaimed solo performer Scott Turner Schofield. From inside the often hilarious—but all too real—moments of his young life on the Homecoming Court and Debutante Ball circuit (in a dress), armed with only a decoder ring and a gifted tongue, Schofield comes out with truly unbelievable stories of a body in search of an identity. By turns slapstick and slap-to-the-face, this drama invites audiences and readers to explore gender, sex, sexuality, and self in their own first person.
"Scott Turner Schofield's storytelling is so honest, his approach so unique, his style so unselfconscious and disarming, that his shows will have you wrapped around his pinkie in no time. I've seen this Southern gent win over the most jaded of New York theater audiences with one wry smile and a perfectly placed raised eyebrow. He's the real thing—and nothing less than a national treasure." — T Cooper, bestselling author of Lipshitz Six, or Two Angry Blondes and Some of the Parts
Two Truths and a Lie is the latest work from Homofactus Press, a publishing house dedicated to work by and for trans and genderqueer men. Publisher Jay Sennett is thrilled with Schofield's book: “Scott is both a torchbearer for a rich tradition of queer theater and a catalyst for new work that uniquely describes transmasculine experiences.”

Schofield: "I write my shows with my family in mind: my family who doesn't share and doesn't really understand my transgender and queer identities, but who love me and would rather hear a story than a lecture. I hope that my readers—audiences I may never look in the eye—find something in my book to add to their understanding of the transgender experience, and even better, to their own experiences of their genders, too."
