Taking Flight Festival

Khon by Michael Phong Le
The Vietnamese have a word for bending the rules... it's called 'khon' – but Kevin is far more British than Vietnamese, and he has never really been any good at being khon, so when the Police come knocking at the door...

Clarissa By Lekha Desai Morrison
Jasmin is getting married and this weekend she is entertaining her prospective mother-in-law for the first time, but she fears her favourite spicy sambhar won't impress the middle-class palette of the notorious Clarissa Cartwright. But while she is worrying over whether she is a Jamie person or a Heston person Clarissa shows up on her doorstep with a disturbing request.

Taylor Swift's Dog by Samuel Daram
Yazmina wants to become a writer and Jia is a literary agent on the lookout for the next big thing, but just who is going to be the new JK Rowling? And what has Taylor Swift's Dog got to do with it? An insightful satire into the politics and prejudices of publishing.

These three exciting new family friendly short plays are the culmination of Red Dragonfly's nationwide search to find new and emerging writers from Britain's East Asian, South Asian and South-East Asian communities, bringing three stunning new stories to the stage – stories that could only have been made in Britain…

This project is supported by funding from Arts Council England.
