Skyduck: A Chinese Spy Comedy

By Sam Wang

Presented by SquareSums&Co and Skyduck & Co.
Directed by Aileen Huynh

Think Chinese Top Gun with 007 to a J-Pop backing track!

Skyduck: A Chinese Spy Comedy is a quirky and irrelevant parody of China’s top secret agents trying to steal America’s top-secret fighter jet software in the early 1990s – all while Australia was busy preparing for the Sydney Olympics!

Featuring an outrageous mix of AV, puppets and musical numbers, Skyduck hysterically recreates an international action spy comedy on stage utilising every DIY theatre trick in the books.

Written and performed by Sam Wang (New Gold Mountain, Runaway Millionaires, Life is Easy), this hilarious, bilingual solo comedy was nominated for ‘Best Male Lead in an Independent Production’ at the Sydney Theatre Awards 2019 and was mentioned in Timeout Sydney as one of the best stage shows of 2019.
