Overview

La Boite presents
Single Asian Female
By Michelle Law

An incisive new comedy skewering race and gender in contemporary Australia from Brisbane-based award winning writer Michelle Law. Step into the after-hours of a suburban Chinese restaurant and meet a family of whip smart women who are definitely talking about you in their native tongue. 

Set on the Sunshine Coast this hilarious play answers what it means to be an Asian woman living in Australia.

For Pearl, a Chinese migrant operating a restaurant, it means sacrifice and struggling to connect with her very westernised children.

For Zoe, the eldest child, it means approaching a crossroads in her life where she’s forced to choose between a career and a family.

For Mei, the youngest child, it means being bullied at school and grappling with the desire to assimilate versus cultivating a unique identity.

Two sisters at odds with each other and a mother harboring a secret that threatens to tear her family apart, Australian domesticity like you’ve never seen it before.

Director Claire Christian Designer Moe Assaad Composer/Sound Designer Wil Hughes Lighting Design Keith Clark Performers Hsiao-Ling Tang, Courtney Stewart, Alex Lee, Emily Burton, Patrick Jhanur and Emily Vascotto
