A Royal Exchange Theatre, Yellow Earth and Black Theatre Live co-production
THE DREAMS OF LILY KWOK
- 22 March 2018 - 7 April 2018
- The Studio
Based on Helen Tse’s bestselling novel Sweet Mandarin, this evocative new play by award winning writer In-Sook Chappell, tells the extraordinary story of the women behind the famous Manchester restaurant. A family held together with one lifeline-food.
Helen has grown up in the UK, but always felt a piece of her story was missing.
Amidst the skyscrapers and bustling streets of Hong Kong, she meets her grandmother, Lily Kwok, and steps into a past of shocking family secrets that will change her life forever.
“A gripping tale of struggle, laughter, love and food… with a universal story of survival that will move your soul” Ken Hom on the novel Sweet Mandarin
