Citizens of Nowhere?

Part of China Changing Festival

Citizens of Nowhere? is a funny and moving real-time live audio drama which invites the audience to eavesdrop on the British Chinese Lo family at a moment of crisis.

This immersive and intimate performance by actors seated among the audience is simultaneously experienced through headphones and includes café refreshments.

Matriarch Linda (Pik-Sen Lim) has come to London to announce a decision to her son Jun Chi (Siu Hun Li) and daughter Jane (Jennifer Lim); but ambitious Jane has big news of her own, while Jun Chi is mystified by their mother’s refusal to engage with plans for his upcoming wedding. With Brexit on the horizon, it’s a crossroads for all three. Their rendezvous in the café reveals questions of identity and belonging rooted in the past; how can they resolve the conflict that unfolds amid a family celebration?

Written by Ming Ho (Writers’ Guild Best Radio Drama 2018, The Things We Never Said,
BBC Radio 4) and directed by David Jiang, the script explores the contemporary British Chinese experience and explores generational and cultural identities within a British-Chinese family.

A co-production between Chinese Arts Now and Beijing 707N Theatre.
