Wun's Tea Room & Bar, London

No dates yet

£3.00 - £46.00

You're in a bar, or is it a cafe, a restaurant? Either way you start catching snatches of conversation. An explosive encounter between a waiter and pushy customer, obnoxious un-PC mutterings from the table behind you, an anxious hand-wrangling conversation about something monumentally important. "Overheard" draws on contemporary crises and challenges in the Chinese world, allowing you to eavesdrop on the hopes and dreams, private politics, and secret desires of characters from across the Chinese diaspora. 

This intimate performance by actors seated among the audience is experienced through headphones, as if eavesdropping, and includes refreshments according to your preference. As you experience the performance you can also treat yourself to delicious snacks and food from Wun's Tea Room. 

Tourguide headsets generously provided by Ours Travel.

Produced by Chinese Arts Now in association with York Theatre Royal. With thanks to Beijing 707N Theatre and Wun's Tea Room. Supported by Shoreditch Town Hall.
