Book by Kurt Johns and Gail Rastorfer adapted from the novel "Hello Kitty Must Die" by Angela S. Choi

World Premiere at the 2023 Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Based on the hugely successful cult novel and produced by Alchemation (SIX, The Notebook, The Play That Goes Wrong, West End’s Mrs. Doubtfire), this twisting musical presents a comedic and empowering manifesto of Asian feminism.


Not your average tale of female self-discovery, the tale embarks upon a ruthless journey of sex, violence, and stilettos.  After all, women can be anything they aspire to be – even murderers.

Hello Kitty Must Die is a thrilling story by an Asian American woman, about an Asian American woman, now set to be brought to life by Asian American women. This outrageously bold musical mash-up strikes against the outdated stereotypes forced onto Asian women by a white, patriarchal society.  Determined to reclaim her anger and take revenge on the world, Fiona creates her own version of the American Dream and paints a fearless depiction of Asian feminism and the expectations of family, dating and that unassuming cartoon cat, only to tear them to shreds.
