Pick of the week the­atre

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Out & About - Jane Al­bert

Aus­tralian Graf­fiti The de­but full-length play by Dis­apol Savet­sila — Syd­ney The­atre Com­pany’s youngest com­mis­sioned play­wright for a main-stage sea­son — is the hu­mor­ous and touch­ing Aus­tralian Graf­fiti. De­scrib­ing it as “mag­i­cal re­al­ism”, Savet­sila says the play de­picts a fam­ily of Thai restau­ra­teurs who mi­grate to a mys­te­ri­ous in­land town. The topic of Aus­tralian Graf­fiti is timely, ex­plor­ing the mi­grant ex­pe­ri­ence and chal­lenges of as­sim­i­la­tion. With STC new­comer Ma­son Phoumi­rath (pic­tured). Syd­ney The­atre Com­pany, Wharf II The­atre, 4 Hick­son Road. Tonight, 7.30pm. Tick­ets: $32$35. Book­ings: (02) 9250 1777 or on­line. Un­til Au­gust 12.
