Olivier nominee Mei Mac is starring as Kim in untitled f*ck m*ss s**gon play by Kimber Lee.
The show recently completed its run at the Manchester Royal Exchange ahead of transferring to the Young Vic in September. Kimber wrote untitled f*ck m*ss s**gon play in response to seeing the musical Miss Saigon; the piece addresses the East and South-East Asian stereotypes we see represented on stage and beyond.
