Great writing, Funny, Refreshing, Thought-provoking, Must see

See it if You like something different, a non conventional play to talk about story from an anti-prejudice / stereotype perspective.

Indulgent, Great staging, Ambitious, Cliched

See it if You want your thoughts challenged, in an unusually structured play.

Don't see it if I understood what the play was trying to do but didn't think it necessarily achieved its goal

Intense, Dizzying, Great acting, Funny, Clever

See it if you enjoy satire and shows that explore racial prejudice and stereotypes. If you like parodies and seeing tropes turned on their head

Don't see it if you’re a fan of classic shows like Miss Saigon and South Pacific. If you don’t enjoy shows that mock and call out systemic racism

Funny, Thought-provoking, Edgy, Ambitious

See it if You enjoy challenging, thought provoking new writing. And you are interested in the criticisms of imperialism and white centric culture.

Don't see it if You are a huge fan of Miss Saigon and don't get why some people don't like it. You'd prefer those people stay silent like the used to.

“All in all, if the production was trimmed just a little, it would assert itself seamlessly. The absence of an interval helps, but, as it is, it’s slightly too repetitive to be perfect.”

The London Evening Standard

“The way Lee nails these damaging stereotypes and the fetishistic colonial fantasies that underly them is savagely funny the first time round. But the repetitions and the relentlessly acid tone soon show diminishing returns...Lee’s play is emblematic of a certain kind of American drama which uses sledgehammer emphasis to make historically marginalised communities feel ‘seen’ while allowing white theatregoers to feel comfortably guilty.”

London Theatre

“It’s easy to applaud the point of view while simultaneously wishing for more commitment to an actual play and not to an exercise in score-settling that, in an intriguing irony, owes its very existence to the kind of show that it proceeds to savage...As it is, you leave this production impressed by its argument even as you wonder about the play Lee, in less purely reactive form, might go on to write.”

Time Out London

“It’s a tough ask for the performers, who have to deliberately play stereotypes, but the smart decision here is to do it sincerely. No winking to the audience, just committed, straight acting which makes the takedown all the more damning.”

The Arts Desk

“We do get this repetition of the same scene playing out in a slapsticky, satirical style, an approach that begins to feel a little like a student production so, so keen to make its point that it wears rather than stings.”

All That Dazzles (UK)
September 24th, 2023

“Truth be told, the title of this play is more shocking and confrontational than its content, but that may well be the point. ‘Untitled m*ss s**gon play’ doesn't seem to have been written with any malice or to launch an attack on the classics it takes aim at – instead, it wants to remind us just how awful it is that so little variety in stories for Asian leading actors has been allowed.”

West End Best Friend
September 23rd, 2023

“ ‘untitled f*ck m*ss s**gon play’ is surprisingly funny and utilises satire to further its agenda...However, the piece also tackles the issues of imperialism, racism, and misogyny almost until the final moments when it fails to find a wholly conclusive ending. Despite this, the play still packs a punch and this bold and unapologetic piece will make you laugh, think, and wonder why these stories were left unchallenged for so long.”
