“Money is ridiculous isn’t it? It gets in the way of everything, it’s everywhere. It can save a life, or ruin it all in the same breath.”
Set in Canada’s condo and casino playground of Vancouver, this hard-hitting new play from multi-award winning playwright, Marjorie Chan, is a tale of social climbing and the fraying social fabric among the wealthy and hangers-on of Vancouver’s Asian Canadian community. Inspired by the modern classic, Sunrise by Cao Yu, this exquisite World Premiere features a cast of six powerful Asian Canadian women, and examines the damning effect of today’s hyper-consumerist society. A not-to-be-missed new play sure to speak to Torontonians as our city continues to rise to new heights while forgetting the people who live on the ground.
