Going Down by Michele Lee
Pier 4, Hickson Road, Walsh Bay, NSW, 2000, Australia
23rd March 2018 to 5th May 2018
Going Down is the first full-length play for Sydney Theatre Company by Michele Lee, winner of the 2016 Queensland Premier’s Drama Award for her play Rice. Co-produced with Malthouse Theatre, it’s a brutally funny and frank examination of flawed characters failing at life in the most outrageous way. Natalie Yang has just published her memoir, Banana Girl, an explicit look at life as a twenty-something woman in millennial Australia. It isn’t the heart-warming migrant story that people expected. Nor is it a feminist call to arms. And it certainly isn’t on the best-seller lists.
