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. Winner of the inaugural Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting 2019, International Award, this powerful world premiere is directed by Roy Alexander Weise (The Mountaintop) for the Royal Exchange Theatre as part of Manchester International Festival.
Age guidance: 14+
The play contains strong language, references to racist stereotypes of East Asian/South Asian/Pacific Islands people, implied sexual situations, and allusions to miscarriage. There are heavily stylised and unrealistic depictions of suicide, as well as blood, knives and guns.
