Revisit this seminal work of Asian-Canadian theatre that examines the deep challenges of being torn between cultures and identities. Drawn together by the death of their friend and unofficial leader, five young Asian Canadian men must confront unrealized potential, devastating loss, and time travel, all while trying not to punch too many white boys in the face. This wickedly funny play, adapted from a celebrated book, is a call to anyone who has felt out of place in the world. (
