Boy Meets Girl

Boy Meets Girl

The story starts with our hero, Leo, having a bad day. He’s been fired (again) and is being given a hard time about it by his Mum. And then, to make matters worse, he ends up playing gooseberry to his younger brother James, on their night out together. Leo’s about to write the day off as one to forget but then he bumps into Judy and finds himself deeply attracted to this surprising and beguiling woman. They bond over drinks and, unfazed by the fact that there’s clearly a bit of an age gap between them, they arrange to meet the following evening. Leo’s mother, Pam, is very unhappy that her son is having dinner with an older woman (“She’s nearly my age!”.) But Leo doesn’t care what anyone else thinks; he knows that he’s met someone very special.
The relationship between Leo and Judy quickly catches fire. He’s captivated by her and she’s elated to have found a soul mate who accepts her entirely on her own terms. However, there is the not inconsiderable matter of their families to contend with. Judy’s mother and sister are loving and supportive but also quite eccentric and frequently a source of embarrassment to Judy. Meantime, although Leo’s dad and brother both learn the truth about Judy’s background, no-one wants to share the whole story with Pam as they fear that her response may not be entirely positive. And they’re not entirely mistaken……..
BOY MEETS GIRL is the UK’s first transgender romantic comedy, featuring a transgender actress at the heart of the story.
