Phi and Me is a new comedy play, debuting at the 2011 Comedy Festival.
Phi is a second generation Vietnamese Australian. Phi appears to be a typical Vietnamese boy, who studies hard to make his mother proud, but deep down inside all Phi ever wanted in life was to be a superstar.
Adapted from Diana’s published Short Story – “5 ways to disappoint your Vietnamese Mother” , the Comedy play will be performed at the Guildford Lane Gallery.
Phi and Me highlights issues faced by second generation Vietnamese Australian families, including stereotyping and the adversities his mother faced as a refugee. From language barriers to getting through Australian customs, Phi shares funny stories about his dysfunctional relationship with his mum.
The show runs from 30 March to 10 April.
To find out more and book tickets go to their website.
Also showing at Guildford Lane Gallery during the show will be an exhibition called, ‘Identity'. (It's a popular topic!) The exhibition explores the issues of ethnic cultural traditions that influence second generation Vietnamese women growing up in Australia.
Her Productions are calling out for submissions. So if you are interested you have until the 11 March to get your submission ready.
