Behold the theatre production everyone in Brisbane has been talking about since it first premiered in 2017 — and one that ticks plenty of boxes. A comedy from a talented local writer: check. A timely skewering of race and gender: check again.

Written by Michelle Law, Single Asian Female steps into the world of three women from one Chinese family living on the Sunshine Coast. Pearl has runs a restaurant, eldest daughter Zoe is forced to think about the battle between her personal and professional desires, and her younger sister Mei is navigating school. Each contemplates the intersection between their heritage and their western lives, as well as its impact on their identity.

Indeed, their troubles and journey are made all the more powerful due to their status as Chinese women in Australia, and the struggles that it brings — as brought to life with humour and insight by Law, director Claire Christian and the talented cast. The play debuted is the first from Law, who co-wrote and starred in TVs Homecoming Queens, and also penned as the book Sh*t Asian Mothers Say with her brother Benjamin. Yes, she's proving one of Australia's rising stars.
