The sassy, fierce, and very funny Michelle Law
Belvoir’s latest production Single Asian Female’s writer MICHELLE LAW joins Stages in this interview.
The Golden Phoenix, a restaurant on the Sunshine Coast. The last customers have left for the night, and Pearl can unwind. She’s the quintessential matriarch – balancing family, business, and her love of karaoke. Enter her daughters: Zoe, in the throes of online dating, making big life decisions. And Mei, a teenager, grappling with her identity in modern Australia. Of course they see the world differently to their mother. Pearl is the classic (hilarious) onslaught of embarrassing observations, constantly questioning her Westernised children. Tonight she reveals a secret that threatens to tear their family apart.
A show full of joy. It’s sassy, fierce, and very funny – Australian domesticity like you’ve never seen it before, fresh from a smash hit season at La Boite.
