Production by ON THE WIRE, taking place at Yang Sing Restaurant

FROM SHORE TO SHORE

  • 9 March 2019 - 16 March 2019
  • On Tour / External

Three stories, three lives, three journeys to find a place to call home.

三个故事,三种人生,三段旅程,只找到家。

Cheung Wing is escaping from war, Mei Lan’s had enough of the potato peeler and Yi Di wants the impossible; her parents’ approval.  Taking place over a delicious two-course meal, From Shore to Shore blends English, Mandarin and Cantonese to tell the stories of migrant Chinese communities living in the UK.

Award-winning writer Mary Cooper and multilingual collaborator M.W. Sun have woven these tales of love and loss, struggle and survival into a powerful drama told alongside great food and live music.

Ticket prices includes a two course meal taking place at Yang Sing Restaurant, 34 Princess Street, Manchester M1 4JY. (Vegetarian, vegan, halal and gluten-free options available)

"Finally somebody starts to talk about our stories." Fan Wu, student

"Moving and poignant. I could relate to the experiences and feelings of the characters from different generations." Man Wah Chui, Chinese Community Centre

"A smartly staged, eloquently performed production." The Stage

"A beautifully crafted piece of theatre, that kept you intrigued from start to finish." Yorkshire Times

Presented in partnership with Royal Exchange Theatre, Confucius Institute University of Manchester, Yang Sing Restaurant
