Lui moved to Australia with his family and worked as a child actor. In his teens he made a decision to pursue a career as an artist and in doing so avoided the compulsory military service required of all young Singaporean males. Now he’s become a criminal in the eyes of his parents and his home country, and he can never return home.

Joe Lui presents a deeply personal and honest story about confronting his past to forge his future. Using Chinese myths and pop culture icons, Lui delves deep into the nature of his rebellious spirit that led him to decide not to return to Singapore to complete his obligatory two years of military service.

Part spoken-word, part reading and part live memoir, he recounts the unsent letters he wrote to his parents and incorporates live music and clips from his time as a child actor.

This is Joe’s life laid bare; the good, the not so good and the downright perverse.

Based in Perth, Joe has worked with every major WA Performing Arts company and is an emerging writer with Black Swan State Theatre Company.
