Sydney Theatre Company Presents

Australian Graffiti

By Disapol Savetsila

Australian Graffiti

Australian Graffiti is the fourth LOTUS play to be produced in 2017.

It is the debut of a remarkable young Australian writer. Disapol Savetsila’s play is an investigation of the migrant experience from the inside out – a touching and humorous insight into identity and belonging. A Thai family has uprooted its restaurant business one too many times. Being the only migrant household in a small country town turns out not to be a great idea. And when graffiti starts appearing, tensions quickly escalate. Should they go back to Sydney? Should they go back to Thailand? Or should they keep heading west?
