Michelle Law’s (Homecoming Queens, Bloomers) incisive and hilarious comedy, tackling race and gender in contemporary Australia, is back.
Single Asian Female follows the story of the Wong family as they deal with some of life’s big questions and explore what it means to be an Asian woman in Australia. Step into the afterhours of a suburban Chinese restaurant and meet the whip smart women who are definitely talking about you in their native tongue.
With two sisters at odds with each other and a mother harbouring a secret that threatens to tear her family apart, Single Asian Female is Australian domesticity like you’ve never seen it before.
Catch the Wong family in their return to the La Boite stage, following a sold out 2018 season in Sydney at Belvoir.
