Go Home is comprised of vignettes about three generations of Chinese Canadian women . It is presented through monologue, spoken word, music and multimedia. The play explores themes of love, family, tradition, culture, fetishization, assault, language, shame, belonging, and what it really means to be “home”.
As the model minority, Asians are often forgotten in the discussion of racism, and I wanted to explore the idea that racism doesn’t always look like violent encounters and physical threats. I grew up thinking I couldn’t be an actress because I wasn’t white, so I started writing those roles for myself. Go Home is for those who don’t see themselves represented.
