Runtime

Winner of Toronto Fringe's “Digital New Play Contest.”

This show follows two Korean immigrant boys who compete in a Korean game show where they learn how to be Canadian in order to fit in and survive the dangerous territories of high school.

The play borrows the styles of South Korean variety games, and talk shows where competitors are placed in difficult, uncomfortable situations to face outrageous and cutthroat challenges. The play examines the intersections of culture, race, and bullying.

Sponsor: Aubrey & Marla Dan Foundation.

The July 24th performance is followed by a 30min talkback.
