Green Light Arts presents:
Will You Be My Friend, a musical comedy
MAY 9-20, 2018
AWARD-WINNING ARTIST JANICE JO LEE STARS IN A MUSICAL COMEDY ABOUT THE JOURNEY TO FIND HER PLACE IN KITCHENER AS A STRONG, EMPOWERED, KOREAN WOMAN.
Dr. West, Pluto's leading expert on Earthian Friendiology, presents the findings from his latest experiment on Lonely Entity 1, the patient Janice Joanne Sung Hae Lee. Janice volunteered to be a part of the program because she was lonely and out of options. Mike is a charming and handsome white guy who is always looking for a way to “give back”, and so volunteers to be a part of the program and is paired with Janice despite Janice’s friend, Leila’s protestations.
The play is largely inspired by Janice’s personal experiences living in Waterloo Region. “For year’s I thought I was a white person” she says. This is a satire exploring how the dominant culture can program us to erase our sense of self, our ancestors, our identity.
