JEAN TONG is a Melbourne-based writer and director creating politically irreverent works about the untidiness of cultural identification, structural inequality, and Otherness. Her work – tonally best described as ‘wry outrage’ – makes explosive statements using dark humour and vivid imagery that tends to burrow under the skins of audiences long after they leave the theatre. Her other work includes macdeath: a coda, TERRORISM, and Romeo is Not the Only Fruit. She has presented at the Emerging Writers’ Festival and published in Peril Magazine. She is currently completing a Master in Writing for Performance at the VCA.
