2009-08-27 Sweet Mandarin

True Heart Theatre presents Sweet Mandarin, a work-in-progress performance at Tristan Bates Theatre and Asia House, London.

Sweet Mandarin, a memoir by Helen Tse, recounts the courageous stories of the three generation of women in a Chinese family, journeying through the poverty stricken rural China to the 1930s colonial Hong Kong and to the present day multicultural UK. The bittersweet tale of trails and tribulations overcome by valor, determination and familial love is an inspirational parable for all.

True Heart Theatre, in association with the award-winning theatre practitioners from Hong Kong: playwright Mui-ngam Chong and director Hoi-fai Wu, have adapted Sweet Mandarin into a play. True Heart is proud to present our first work-in-progress performance. Three scenes of the play will be performed, followed by a post-show discussion with the director and actors that will give audience a rare insight into how the play has been conceived.
