    There’s a powerful and gorgeous sense of liminality throughout Fly Jamerson’s play. Three characters explore their identities—embracing their fluidity, understanding what it means to construct them, and navigating how we are perceived and move in the world—against a backdrop of a melting Antarctica. Jamerson pushes back against the imagined sterility of a frozen landscape and creates a visually stunning play where life, death, and rebirth all bleed into one another.

    Mythic, queer, gorgeous, singular work. Glorious. Fly Jamerson’s play has broken my mind wide open. Read it. Produce it.

    Three researchers investigate the implications of global climate change, its effects on plankton and algae blooms, and the calamity of masses of dying whales. Exhibiting either dreams or madness, each get caught in spectacular considerations on identity, the importance of naming the animals, as Adam was said to have done, naming themselves, and naming each other. An Antarctic fever dream, stretching back to the beginning of time to the present moment, from when humans were all genders in one being, before being split apart by the gods, or by God, or by nature. It's gorgeous, and I highly recommend it.

    Part exploration of identity. Part commentary on global warming. Part retelling (and retelling) of the book of Genesis. This is one of those plays that I can't wait to see staged because I can not even fathom how incredible the stage craft of it all would be. This play is also a gift to TGNC performers.

    Playwrights Foundation enthusiastically recommends this play, FROZEN FLUID, as a Semi-Finalist for the Bay Area Playwrights Festival 2020. We were moved by the quality of the writing and the relevant and compelling themes that spoke to the mission of our festival. It excelled in a competitive process of 735 plays submitted this year and rose to the top after a six month long process discussing its merits with both national and local Bay Area readers, and we hope it moves swiftly towards production.

    A meditative and deeply lovely exploration of gender, faith, and climate change. Fly effortlessly weaves their themes with gorgeous, abstract speeches and an exciting structure. I would love to see a full production of this.

    This may be my favorite play that I’ve read all year, and I’ve read a LOT. Fly gives us a deeply personal dive into the shifts and changes that occur when one begins to discover their true gender identity, as well as all of the challenges that come with it. Set against a melting tundra littered with dead whales, the fantastical and abstract action gives us some distance in order to safely explore the traumas of dysphoria for non-binary people. This play taught me how to write in my own language. Can not recommend highly enough.

    A beautiful play exploring climate change, gender, and how people build (and break) a family together when they're all that's available. The dialogue is strong and structurally this piece is everything I look for in a play - surprising, nonlinear, and expresses the internal as much as the literal. I highly recommend reading and I'd love to see it one day. Made my (hesitantly titled) New Queer Theatre list on NPX's front page.
