A Japanese stewardess and a British pilot walk onto a plane. Twenty-five years later, their son Joey is thinking of ending things with his Italian boyfriend. Turning to his parents’ interracial relationship for guidance, he embarks on a journey to connect with his roots. But as Joey learns more about his family, a pattern begins to emerge: the notes of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly underscore a century of Asian misrepresentation, orientalism, and exoticisation.
Following ★★★★★ Lessons On Revolution (Soho Theatre), award-winning company Undone Theatre takes over the CPT stage with a riotous new show. Connecting Milan to Nagasaki, Hong Kong to London, SO THAT YOU MAY GO BEYOND THE SEA is an irreverent look at the stories that shape us, whether we like it or not.
Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. With special thanks to Kakilang, Omnibus Theatre, the Social Convention, and Theatre Deli.
"An unrivalled chance to see edgy, experimental and brand-new theatre"
