Set in a peach orchard, PEACHES tells the story of Greg and Prince, a peach farmer and his apprentice, who grow a play and decide to put it on. Can a sharp 2-hander set in an elevator in a hospital, staged on a peach farm help Greg and Prince save all that’s gone bad between them?

A FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND NEW PLAY DEVELOPMENT MODEL & VIRTUAL READING SERIES
Zee Zee has identified a gap that exists in the Canadian theatre ecology. Time and again there is a lack of queer and trans plays being produced on stages across Canada. What started as a four year hunt for our own programming purposes, led to a country-wide conversation with many other artists and producers who all share the view that as curators, producers and presenters of theatrical seasons it is a challenge to find queer and trans focused work.
To rectify this, Zee Zee has established a new model for play creation and dissemination, in order to ensure more equitable representation of 2SLGBTQ+ artists and stories on Canadian stages, as well as strengthen and deepen the bonds of professional artists and collaborators across the country, while ultimately furthering equality for all queer and trans people.
Join us in celebration of the culmination of this 10 month project with readings happening both live and in-person across the country throughout the fall.
Generously supported by TD Bank, Canada Council for the Arts, 100 Gay Men for a Cause, Canadian Heritage.
Facilitated conversation to follow each reading.
