About The One at Ensemble Theatre

WORLD PREMIERE

By: Vanessa Bates

Mel’s got a lot on her plate. Between the anxiety-inducing return of her mother from their old home in Malaysia, her brother Eric’s mysterious double life and the pressure of caring for her mother’s prized poodle, Mel is hungry for more simplicity.

In the world premiere of this new and eccentric family comedy, award-winning playwright Vanessa Bates colourfully unravels the complexities of what it means to be Chinese Eurasian in contemporary Australia. Energetically funny and affectionately provocative, The One is a sizzling hotpot of food, culture and identity.
