The Golden Dragon
Remember when the tooth fairy would reimburse us for losing our teeth? It seemed like a generous sentiment at the time. But who knows if even the tooth fairy would be too down for this.
In the bustling kitchen of The Golden Dragon, a young illegal immigrant is tormented by the pain of a decaying tooth. In desperation, a co-worker performs emergency dentistry using only a spanner and a bottle of vodka. As the boy screams, his extraction is flung through the air into the bottom of the No.6 Thai Soup with Chicken. The search for the missing incisor thus follows the hapless lives of the restaurant's employees and the local residents. Yep, all that over a tooth.
Directed by Daniel Clarke, the Australian premiere of The Golden Dragon will open at MTC Theatre on Friday June 22. Check out mtc.com.au to book.
