In Zach (she/her), Tommi, a displaced, adopted trans girl with a chip on one shoulder and a guitar on the other, hops a greyhound bus from Calgary to Vancouver in search of her birth parents… and spends the 17-hour trip next to an old woman named Zach, who seems to know more about where Tommi comes from than she does.  

As Zach and Tommi fly down a highway full of twists and turns, they return to the question “Who are we if we don’t know where we come from?” and sing songs that wake their Ancestors, and the pavement beneath them, turning their unexpected friendship into a playlist for the road trip home. 

Zach (she/her) is a musical adventure full of humour and heart, that takes the audience on a journey of self-discovery. 


“Zach” Tommi.B.Coyote, she/her, is a transfeminine actor, television creator, playwright, songstress, and artistic leader, born and based in Mohkinstsis (Calgary). A mixed-race adoptee with Filipinx, Settler and Mi’gmaq Ancestors, she creates and performs electrifying oral histories from her unique POV as a displaced, diasporic trans woman looking towards a hopeful future.
