From Shore to Shore

From Shore to Shore is a powerful new drama inspired by stories from Chinese communities living in the UK.

Three stories, three lives, three journeys, to find a place called home.

Cheung Wing is escaping from war, Mei Lan’s had enough of the potato peeler, and Yi Di wants the impossible; her parents’ approval.

Award-winning writer, Mary Cooper, with multilingual collaborator, MW Sun, has drawn on real life stories of love and loss, struggle and survival, to create a powerful new drama with live music and accompanied by great food.

Taking place in a restaurant, with a delicious two course Chinese meal, From Shore to Shore blends English, Mandarin and Cantonese to tell the untold stories of Chinese communities in the UK.

Directed by critically-acclaimed, David K S Tse, working with a cast of seven actor-musicians.
