Publisher’s Synopsis (from its website)

Banana Boys: The Play is a smart, contemporary and wickedly funny play about five young Asian-Canadian men wrestling with issues of race, identity and the death of a friend. It is one story, fragmented into five and reconstructed throughout the course of their lives. Adapted from the novel by Terry Woo, Banana Boys is a “meditation for the restless” and a call to anyone who has felt out of place in the world.
