Thirty Five Square presents
A WESTERNER'S GUIDE TO THE OPIUM WARS
A new play about diversity and the complexities of cultural identity.
Written and performed by Tabitha Woo
Directed by Kevin Ng
Tabitha is of half-Chinese, half-Anglo Australian descent, a mix that leads her to question her connection to the Chinese side of her family. A Westerner’s Guide takes audiences as far back in her family history has she knows – to the early 19th century and the First Opium War. With help from a sock puppet, Queen Victoria and a couple of Broadway show-tunes, she tries to work out the value of her heritage.
