Jem is a self-described butch dyke from Montreal who always imagined spending her life in bars and having multiple flings. When she meets Freda, a woman who exposes Jem’s vulnerabilities, her preconceived notions of who she is become moot as she finds herself partnered in a long-term relationship with kids. Which she surprisingly loves—most of the time. But that’s all changing as Jem and Freda’s marriage shifts from one of love and lust to one of gripes and grumbles.
“A delightful creation that shatters stereotypes . . . this unusually usual family, is universal and will appeal to all.” —My Gay Toronto
“This play is a dramatic poem, which theatrically documents major social change in the 21st century—the re-invention of family, the seismic shifts happening in our perception of gender… a brave and groundbreaking play.” —Judith Thompson, Governor General’s Literary Award–winning author
