From Shore to Shore: 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, M W Sun, draws on real life stories from Chinese interviewees living in the UK to create a powerful new drama of love and loss, struggle and survival, performed alongside live music and great food.

Accompanied by a delicious two-course meal, 'From Shore to Shore' features a cast of seven actor-musicians and blends English, Mandarin and Cantonese to tell the stories of Chinese communities in the UK today.

The play has had extremely positive reviews. See the trailer.
