Thai-Australian playwright Anchuli Felicia King’s English-language adaptation of Australia’s earliest Chinese-language novel stars Shan-Ree Tan, Merlynn Tong and Kimie Tsukakoshi and is co-produced by La Boite and Sydney Theatre Company.
La Boite’s second mainstage production is Capricorn, a razor-sharp rom- com by emerging Queensland writer and Butchulla and Kabi Kabi man, Aidan Rowlingson, playing from 24 July to 12 August 2023.
Capricorn tells the story of a fractured First Nations couple, Sam and Ally, as they question: can you love someone and hate them at the same time?
Through the lens of this broken relationship, Capricorn explores culture, sexuality, personal growth and grief as well as themes of environmental issues, the importance of protest and the effects of institutional corruption on society.
Rowlingson will direct the work with the support of revered Queensland producer, playwright, director and Yuwibara woman, Nadine McDonald- Dowd.
