Summer Rolls by Tuyen Do
[ July 2019 Part 90 & Bristol Old Vic ]
Mai is impulsive, intelligent, independent and growing up fast. As well as realising from a young age that her family are nursing deep wounds and secrets, she also has to navigate her dual identity as a second generation immigrant.
Having escaped war-torn Vietnam, her family’s individual journeys and memories have left scars that Mai was too young to understand. Embracing their silence, Mai’s camera becomes a conduit through which her journey of discovery begins.
Mai Nguyen - Anna Nguyen (nominated - off Westend award for best female actress 2019)
★★★★ The Stage “A beautiful, honest, heartfelt portrayal of the British Vietnamese diaspora”
★★★★ The Upcoming “Summer Rolls is fresh, dynamic play”
★★★★ My Theatre Mates “An impressive debut”
"Kristine Landon-Smith’s production boasts some fine performances particularly from Anna Nguyen as Mai, a teenager discovering herself and first love with David (Keon Martial-Phillip)"
