Songket - What happens when one person's culture is another's crime?

Koua Neng Vang, a Hmong migrant is accused of raping Chan, a young textile designer

Or did Koua recognise, in Chan's confused signals, the enduring rituals of courtship?

Songket is about different cultural notions of love and how the law does, or doesn't, accommodate cultural diversity

"A beautiful and thought-provoking new play ... this is a major new work by one of our best writers" ~ The Australian

This Territory was developed in the wake of the 2005 Cronulla riots through a 6-month research and consultation process with young people across Sydney

The play centres on a violent incident witnessed by a large group of young people, but they disagree about its details and their significance

In trying to get the story straight, the characters start to navigate relationships across the boundaries of ethnicity, gender, education and prejudice
