K-Box at Malthouse Theatre
A 30-something Korean adoptee finds the raucous and riotous side of family in this surreal comedy.
Lucy fled her manic Melbourne routine to find calm in the country. But the home of her adoptive white baby-boomer parents ain’t the place for peace and quiet.
Enter Kim Han, a charismatic K-pop star making a surprise visit to rural Victoria, who tips Lucy’s crisis into a complete tailspin.
But there’s more to this than karaoke. As the evening rockets towards a climax, Lucy will raise the roof with the ones who raised her.
Ra Chapman—one of Malthouse Theatre’s 2018/19 writers in residence—makes her mainstage debut with this caustic and acutely comical new play.
Warning: contains mild coarse language.
