Stunningly observed and sharply comic, this World Premiere was the Inaugural winner of the International Award for the Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting in 2019. We’re delighted to be partnering with the Factory International for Manchester International Festival, Young Vic and Headlong to bring Kimber Lee’s script to the Royal Exchange Theatre as part of Manchester International Festival.- directed by Roy Alexander Weise (THE MOUNTAINTOP)
“Very well. I will do what I must do, Mother”
Kim is having one of those days. A terrible, very bad, no-good kind of day, and the worst part is…it all feels so familiar. Caught up in a never-ending cycle of events, she looks for the exit but the harder she tries, the worse it gets and she begins to wonder: who’s writing this story? She makes a break for it, smashing through a hundred years of bloody narratives that all end the same way. Can she find a way out before it’s too late?
With breathless hilarity, Kimber Lee’s UNTITLED F*CK M*SS S**GON PLAY jumps through time, wriggling inside of and then exploding lifetimes of repeating Asian stereotypes, wrestling history for the right to control your own narrative in a world that thinks it can tell you who you are.
