About The Wong Side of Life:
An Australian drama-comedy musical premiere, set in the future – 2101. The Wong Side of Life, has puppets and actors playing alongside each other in this beautiful love story. It has a futuristic theme. Gone are the days where people used to travel by buses, cars, trains and planes as people now travel by supersonic jet packs!
This love story is about two people, Lin Wong and Reece Hart, who hail from two very different worlds. Lin lives in Sunnyside, your average working-class suburb whereas Reece comes from a showbiz family and is a comedian! He and his mother, Marie Manchester, live in the exclusive suburb of Moonside. Reece’s mother is totally against their relationship as Lin comes from the “wrong side”. It is not until Lin’s father, Dr Wong, moves their family to China, due to his work that Marie’s perception on life changes, as she is diagnosed with cancer. She realises that the only time we should ever look down on a person, is to hold out our hand to help them up and that she had been wrong about life.
A play about resilience, covering issues such as bullying, racism, social inequalities and cancer.
Aimed at 8 + to adults.
