When all your friends want Pad Thai and all you want is pizza!
Albert “Lengy” Lengviriyakul is the son of Thai immigrants who own a restaurant called Thai-riffic! in Western Sydney. He is about to start high school and is desperate to transform his image and just eat some pizza. When his teacher sets a group assignment that focuses on another culture, it becomes apparent that Lengy will not be able to get away from his embarrassing family as easily as he would like.
Through a series of events involving bulk toilet paper, a purple curry and a trip to the Thai New Year Songkran Festival, Lengy discovers his Thai background is pretty awesome after all.
This hilarious and heartfelt play about acceptance, family and belonging will have you laughing out loud!
