Jem Live

Starring Thanks Jem
April 2022

Join us for an outrageous one-Queen drag show and get to know Zee Zee’s newest playwright-in-residence, Queen of the Rodeo Thanks Jem. Experience this local icon doing what she does best with select scenes from her new show in development exploring her obsession with being the ultimate host and cool mom. From baking pies for the audience to hosting dinners Martha would envy, Jem is always striving to build community. Cool Moms, the latest Zee Zee commission, is a drag show-theatre hybrid that dives into her childhood in the foster system as a two-spirit, indigenous kid. She’ll laugh, you’ll cry, but you’ll give Thanks to Jem as they make you confront your white privilege.

Zee Zee Theatre acknowledges that we live and work on the unceded traditional and ancestral territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
