a Collective Artistes production created Chuck Mike, Antonia Kemi Coker and Tonderai Munyevu
directed by Chuck Mike
Presented by Firehouse Theatre Project and the Modlin Center for the Arts
In collaboration with University of Richmond Department of Theatre & Dance
Co-sponsored by African American Repertory, Richmond Triangle Players and Sycamore Rouge
Based on the true-life stories of the two performers, 'Zhe' (pronounced zee) – a gender-neutral pronoun, not he or she – is an "immensely moving, funny and courageous" piece of theatre that follows the lives of two British Africans living at the crossroads of culture, nationality, gender and sexuality. Traveling from idyllic Harare, Zimbabwe to London's gritty inner city; from the playfulness of childhood to the pain of adolescence; from the desire for forgiveness to self-acceptance, this humorous yet haunting drama encompasses the multiplicity of our cultural, gender and sexual identities and takes a fresh look at what makes us who we are.
