The outstanding young person's theatre company Monkey Baa, will be performing the hilarious Thai-riffic! in the July school holidays at the Lendlease Darling Quarter Theatre. Based on the bestselling novel by Oliver Phommavanh, this original Australian play will delight children aged from 7- 14 years. It will be on stage from July 4 - 8 in the first week of the school holidays.


In case you don't know it, the story goes a bit like this - Albert “Lengy” Lengviriyakul is very self-conscious about his Thai heritage, his immigrant parents and their restaurant called Thai-riffic! When Lengy has to start high school, he really wants to change his image and do normal stuff like eat pizza, like all the other kids do!

However, once at high school one of his teachers creates a group assignment where they have to focus on another culture and Lengy's group has to study the Thai culture! Poor old Lengy then has some chaotic times ahead of him which involves bulk toilet paper, a purple curry and a trip to the famous Songkran Festival which celebrates the Thai New Year!

In the end Lengy realises that the Thai culture ain't too bad after all and is indeed Thai-riffic!

This 60 minute long hilarious and poignant play about acceptance, will have audiences laughing out loud whether they are 7 or 70 years old!

Adapted by Nathan Luff and directed by Lisa Freshwater (Life Force), Thai-riffic! will star Jemwel Danao (A Man with Five Children), Nat Jobe (Room on the Broom), Kate Betcher (A Tale of Two Cities), Lap Phan (Australia Day) and Graeme McRae (The Gruffalo). The development of Thai-riffic! was supported by Riverside Theatres.
