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.
Currency Press acknowledges the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which we work. We pay our respects to their elders past, present and emerging. Always was, always will be Aboriginal Land.
