From the producers of SIX and The Play That Goes Wrong, this wickedly dark comic musical is set to be the smash hit of the Edinburgh Fringe.

Based on the cult novel by Angela S. Choi, 'Hello Kitty Must Die' is the best written show at the fringe so far this year. A complete drama, a riveting narrative, a musical full of humour and sass; there's nothing quite like it.

Fiona Yu is a Chinese-American lawyer struggling against the stereotypes enforced upon her by her parents, and society. A good Chinese girl must cook and clean, a good Chinese girl must not do 'boy activities', a good Chinese girl must get married (soon!) and she must do as everyone pleases but herself. In 'Hello Kitty Must Die' we follow Fiona as she rebels in the most delicious, diabolical ways.
