★★★★ “Ferociously funny” – Guardian

Startling, hilarious new play Untitled F*ck M*ss S**gon comes to the Young Vic this Autumn 2023.

With breathless hilarity, Kimber Lee’s untitled f*ck m*ss s**gon play jumps through time – wriggling inside of and then exploding lifetimes of repeating Asian stereotypes, wrestling history for the right to control your own narrative in a world that thinks it can tell you who you are.

Winner of the inaugural Bruntwood Prize for Playwrighting 2019 International Award, this powerful world premiere is directed by Roy Alexander Weise (The Mountaintop) for the Royal Exchange Theatre as part of Manchester International Festival.

The play stars Olivier Award nominee Mei Mac (My Neighbour Totoro) as Kim, with Lourdes Faberes (Boiling Point) as Rosie / Cio-Cio, Jennifer Kirby (Call the Midwife) as Evelyn / Richards, Tom Weston-Jones (Sanditon) as Clark, Rochelle Rose (Rockets and Blue Lights) as the Narrator / Brenda, and Jeff D’Sangalang (The Ocean At The End Of The Lane) as Afi/Goro.

Untitled F*ck M*ss S**gon plays the Young Vic Theatre in Autumn 2023 – from 18 September to 4 November 2023.

Produced by Royal Exchange Theatre, Factory International for Manchester International Festival, Young Vic and Headlong.

What's the story of Untitled F*ck M*ss S**gon Play?

Kim is having one of those days. A terrible, very bad, no-good kind of day, and the worst part is…it all feels so familiar. Caught up in a never-ending cycle of events, she looks for the exit but the harder she tries, the worse it gets and she begins to wonder: who’s writing this story? She makes a break for it, smashing through a hundred years of bloody narratives that all end the same way. Can she find a way out before it’s too late?

The play is a Royal Exchange Theatre, Factory International for Manchester International Festival, Young Vic Theatre and Headlong co-production. Star of the play Mei Mac said in a statement: "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. 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.” Writer Kimber Lee said: "I cannot wait to get in the rehearsal room with this wonderful cast! A play craves embodiment, and I'm looking forward to getting to know these incredibly gifted actors, and seeing how each person brings their humor, intelligence and passion to the process." Director Roy Alexander Weise said: “When I first read Kimber’s play it blew me away and I knew we had to programme it. We received it on the first day of our tenure so it’s serendipitous that it’s my last production as Artistic Director. It’s the greatest privilege to be asked to direct this brilliantly funny, uniquely voiced and skilfully crafted masterpiece. We’ve pulled together an amazing team to shape the story ready for the stage. The cast are fantastic and I can’t wait to get into a rehearsal room and to show the world how f*cking funny Kimber’s play is. I can’t wait!” More about tickets to untitled f*ck mss s**gon play at the Young Vic in London
