“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.
Originally commissioned by University of British Columbia, and developed with the support of the Ontario Arts Council, The Arts Club, Cahoots Theatre and The Banff Centre for the Arts (Playwright’s Lab)
