FREDA AND JEM’S BEST OF THE WEEK
SEPTEMBER 13 - OCTOBER 4

“a delightful creation that shatters stereotypes”

— My Gay Toronto

Freda and Jem are two women who fell in love, had kids, and built a family together. When they decide to split up, their family discovers that their love for each other doesn’t have to end at divorce – but it will have to change. A heartwarming story about family making and family breaking.

Freda and Jem’s Best of the Week has been developed as part of Buddies’ Artist Residency Program. We are very excited to begin our 36th Season with this incredible family story.
