King of the Yees – NAC English Theatre

October 28, 2017 @ 2:00 pm

It’s mid-rehearsal, and two actors playing Lauren and Larry deliver their lines. All is well until the real Larry wanders onstage. When the real Lauren – who, it seems, is also the playwright – leaps up from the audience, chaos ensues. Throw in some rogue spectators, a corrupt senator, lion dancers, ghostly ancestors, and a few firecrackers, and you have King of the Yees, an unapologetic and hilarious take on Chinese culture and tradition in North America. On est en pleine répétition et les deux acteurs qui incarnent Lauren et Larry échangent leurs répliques. Tout va bien jusqu’au moment où le vrai Larry apparaît sur scène. Quand la vraie Lauren – qui, incidemment, est aussi l’auteure de la pièce – jaillit du public, la situation devient vite chaotique.
