Tonight I had the overwhelming pleasure of seeing Jessie Bear perform in her new almost one woman show, Type What Now. In the play, Jessie recounts her real life tale of being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and oh what a journey it is. Jessie starts of by talking about her thoughts of self hatred, which we all have. She hates her body and the way every inch of it looks and she tells us all of this at length.  Even as she tells it, you can feel the audience judging, not her, but themselves and it’s a powerful intro to say the least.  It sets the stage for a play which explores self loathing, guilt, pain, fear and finally joy as Jessie unearths the epic tale of her battle with her very own body.
