PHI AND ME
WEDNESDAY 30 MARCH – SUNDAY 10 APRIL 2011
Performing for the first time at the 2011 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, FD Productions presents ‘Phi and Me’.
Phi is a second generation Vietnamese Australian. Phi appears to be a typical Vietnamese boy, who studies hard to make his mother proud, but deep down inside all Phi ever wanted in life was to be a superstar.
The play uses humour to highlight issues faced by second generation Vietnamese families, including stereotyping and the adversities Phi’s mother faced as a refugee. From language barriers to getting through Australian customs, Phi shares funny stories about his dysfunctional relationship with his mum.
