The "honest, adventurous and hilarious" (audience member) show returns by popular demand!
Lucy Liu is an Asian American icon and star of the new 'Shazam!'
Eden is a star employee of a local cinema, selling the tickets.
She's always told she looks like Lucy Liu: her idol and her nemesis.
Can she ever reach Lucy's Hollywood heights?
With the help of Camden People's Time Machine, and with you – the audience – in control, Eden will go on a funny, fast-paced, and sometimes heartbreaking adventure through alternative pasts, presents, and futures, as she attempts to rewrite and reclaim her story as a superstar in her own right.
Life is not a game.
Every choice has a consequence.
No two shows will be the same.
Her life is in your hands...
On Friday 24 Nov, we are inviting East and Southeast Asian (ESEA) audience members to our Affinity Night performance of I’m Sorry I’m Not Lucy Liu. This performance has been arranged specifically for an ESEA-identifying audience to experience the show.
Pre-show, we are hosting a community event and panel discussion about the ESEA experience in the UK, an opportunity to meet like-minded ESEA theatre-goers and to hear from prominent activists in BESEA community. This event is being created in collaboration with EVR (End Violence and Racism Against ESEA Communities) and On Your Side. More details will be released in the coming weeks.
Our show is about belonging and how hard it is to find a place that feels like home, especially as an East Asian person in the UK. We want our ESEA community to feel represented, seen, and celebrated. This evening creates a space where we can explore our story and connect with each other without the added barrier of the white gaze.
We understand and recognise the complexity of cultural and racial identities and want to affirm that no one will be prevented from attending this performance or the preceding event. However, we do ask that you book your ticket mindfully and with the intention to support the environment we aim to cultivate.
