GOING DOWN
By Michele Lee

World premiere

Sex and the millennial city

Natalie Yang has just published her memoir, Banana Girl, a sexually 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.

Going Down is the first full-length play for STC 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 ways possible.

Natalie, for one, has washed up on the shores of anonymity. But she isn’t going to wallow in existential crisis, she’s going to double down. Her next book, 100 Cocks in 100 Nights, could be the scandalous reboot her career needs. Or it could be a complete disaster. Only when she hits rock bottom will she find a way back up.

"Look, let’s not talk about the Mekong. We’re all women here. Let’s talk about the female gaze. On sex. That’s my life. That’s what I write about.”
Natalie
