Duddell's, London

Saturday, 26 Jan - Saturday, 2 Feb

£19.00 - £51.00

A funny and moving real-time live audio drama by award-winning writer, Ming Ho, directed by David Jiang.

British-Chinese matriarch Linda Lo (Pik-Sen Lim) has come to London to announce a decision to her son Jun Chi (Siu Hun Li) and daughter, Jane (Jennifer Lim); but ambitious Jane has big news of her own, while Jun Chi is mystified by their mother’s refusal to engage with plans for his upcoming wedding.  With Brexit on the horizon, it’s a crossroads for all three…

This intimate performance by actors seated among the audience is experienced through headphones, as if eavesdropping, and includes light refreshments from Duddell's London.

Duddell’s London is the first of the celebrated restaurant and arts space concept to open outside of Hong Kong. As with its Michelin-starred Hong Kong counterpart,  Duddell’s London showcases authentic Cantonese cuisine and hand-crafted dim sum, using only the freshest, high quality ingredients.

“… a nuanced and compelling look at the evolution of identity” (oughttobeclowns.com)
