Australian Graffiti
Sydney Theatre Company presents
Australian Graffiti

7 Jul 2017 to 12 Aug 2017

Sydney Theatre Company presents
By Disapol Savetsila

World premiere

Back to where we came from

Ben’s family has uprooted its restaurant business one too many times. Being the only Thai 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?

Australian Graffiti marks the debut of a remarkable young voice. Disapol Savetsila’s play is an investigation of the migrant experience from the inside out. Teasing out the complexities of identity and belonging, his writing – both wryly humorous and deeply affecting – offers an insight into Australian lives often overlooked.

Developed by STC in partnership with Asian Australian arts company Performance 4a and Playwriting Australia, Australian Graffiti is an STC commission directed by Paige Rattray, who has been part of the play’s evolution since its STC Rough Draft workshop in 2015.

“You can’t stay away from this place. It’s your home.”
