Andrew moves to Singapore, where his features shine and his skin is extra-white. But, in profile, he still looks like a child's drawing of a shark. And he must keep moving forward, though he smells blood. With his modelling career drying up, visa swiftly disappearing, and the water stagnating, an older Singaporean man named T. swims into his jaws…

Superiority tackles self-loathing in this Queer clapback to Eat, Pray, Love and its kin. Poorly Drawn Shark is a sharp and hilarious attack on autobiography: drenched in salt water and biting hungrily at Australia's fetishisation of South East Asia. Saviours, daddies, selfies, servitude, and only the sexiest colonial ghosts wash up on the shore as performers Andrew Sutherland and Ming Yang Lim deep dive into a sea of narcissism, need, objectification, and nationhood.

Nauseating, grotesquely funny and brutally aware, prepare to Eat, Prey, Hate in this autobiographical takedown of the western travel narratives and enlightenments we seek to consume. Winner of the Blaz Award for New Writing (Fringe World 2019) and created in collaboration with Vidya Rajan (Malthouse writer-in-residence), performer Ming Yang Lim, and director Joe Paradise Lui, Poorly Drawn Shark sees theatre-maker Andrew Sutherland dredging the shallowest of waters: himself.
