This is a vivid theatrical portrayal of one of the 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.
