WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
"Zhe" (pronounced zee) is a gender-neutral pronoun - not he or she. Based on the true-life stories of the two performers, this "immensely moving, funny and courageous" piece of theatre follows the lives of two British Africans living at the crossroads of culture, nationality, gender and sexuality. Travelling 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.
