It’s Chinese New Year in 1940s Hong Kong and celebrations are in full swing. Julie, the daughter of the island’s British Governor, crashes the servant’s party downstairs. What starts as a game descends into a fight for survival as sex, power, money and race collide on a hot night in the Pearl River Delta.
“We are delighted to announce that we are continuing to create work even during lockdown. This is a vital story, tackling complex social politics – relations between Britain, China and Hong Kong – in a simple, powerful human tale.”
Alex Clifton, Artistic Director, Storyhouse
