Moths. They’re coming.

Six actors do a play exploring gender and Asian identity, and through the course of this they confront uncomfortable truths about themselves.

They head towards the light.

They come out, burst from their chrysalis.

The play becomes successful and epic and eternal.

The script uses words from the transcripts of interviews with over 20 young Asian Australians.
