An adaptation of Cher Chidzey’s novel about Ken, a middle-aged Chinese engineer who arrives in Australia with a fake identity on a holiday working visa.
Ken has big dreams of wealth to be made for the benefit of his family, but his imminent visa expiry forces him to enroll in a communication course at TAFE. Meeting Julia, his communication teacher shifts his quest to embracing life… Ken’s Quest gives insight into migrants’ frustrations over workplace dynamics, underemployment, discrimination, and alienation.
This multilingual (English and Mandarin) reading will be performed by an exciting, culturally diverse cast.
Adapted and Directed by Adam Cass
