Mei Mac to lead ‘untitled f*ck m*ss s**gon play’ at the Young Vic
The Olivier Award-nominated actress will play Kim in Kimber Lee’s play about the effects of Asian stereotyping. The production will run in London in autumn 2023.
Mei Mac will star in the London premiere of untitled fck mss s**gon play this autumn. untitled fck mss s**gon play begins previews at the Young Vic on 18 September, with an opening night on 22 September, and performances to 4 November.
Kimber Lee’s play follows Kim, an Asian woman who tries to break out of a lifetime of stereotypes. Press material states the play “wrestles history for the right to control your own narrative in a world that thinks it can tell you who you are.”
Mei Mac will play Kim. She previously led the six-time Olivier Award-winning play My Neighbour Totoro. Lourdes Faberes, Jennifer Kirby, Tom Weston-Jones, Rochelle Rose, Jeff D’Sangalang also star.
"I'm thrilled to be bringing Kimber Lee's play to life. It's a bold and delicious opportunity to reclaim the narrative of East and South East Asian women in the diaspora, from years of dehumanisation and denied agency," said Mac.
"It's empowering to explore the conversations I've had with my sisters and in my communities with a wider audience in such a fun, spicy, theatrical way. A genre, timeline defying way. Because that's what's so exciting about this play; its refusal to be reduced by the patriarchy and its determination to take full autonomy,” continued Mac.
Roy Alexander Weise directs, with design by Khadija Raza, costume design by Loren Elstein, lighting design by Josh Pharo, composition by Ruth Chan, sound design by Giles Thomas, and movement by Shelley Maxwell.
