‘A story of soil’, by Chi Vu, is an Australian-Vietnamese tale about a generation of young people who are attempting to create a new identity for themselves that incorporates both Western and Asian ways. Tien, a young Australian woman with Vietnamese parents, runs away with her Australian boyfriend, who is rebelling against his middle-class family. Tien’s sense of identity is a complex one that draws on her Vietnamese heritage and her upbringing in suburban Melbourne. The play highlights the clash between Vietnamese and Australian values between hearth and home and Western individualism.
