In Michele Lee‘s new play Going Down, things aren’t going so great for protagonist Natalie Yang when her memoir Banana Girl doesn’t set the shelves on fire. But she’s determined to double down and reboot her career… or hit rock bottom.
Sophie chatted to Michele about intersectionality, identity especially as an Asian-Australian, millennial life and defying expectations.
