The word “zhe” is a gender-neutral pronoun referring to neither he nor she. “Zhe: [noun] Undefined” is a new play created by London-based theater company Collective Artistes, and based on the true life stories of the two performers, Antonia Kemi Coker and Tonderai Munyevu. It follows the lives of two British Africans living at the crossroads of culture, nationality, gender and sexuality. Traveling from Zimbabwe to London’s inner city, they move from the innocence of childhood to the pain of adolescence and the desire for self-acceptance by examining their cultural, gender and sexual identities. It’s presented by the Firehouse Theatre Project, the Modlin Center for the Arts and University of Richmond’s theater and dance department, with support from the African American Repertory Theatre, Richmond Triangle Players and Sycamore Rouge. “Zhe: [noun] Undefined” runs at Firehouse from Jan. 10-12. $15-$25. collectiveartistes.co.uk.
