Drinks reception from 17:00
Play 18:00 – 19:15
Followed by Q&A with the playwright

Behind the Curtained Door follows three Chinese women of different generations whose friendships prove to be stronger than the lies and betrayals they face together. In a run-down flat in Oldham, Ah Luk is coming to terms with the recent loss of her husband while her neighbour Ping and their niece Yiling attempt to comfort her. It tells the story of how three Chinese women find love and happiness while their lives disintegrate.
The performance will be followed by a Q&A with the playwright MW Sun. Join us for an evening of networking and entertainment promoting cross-cultural understanding. This vibrant gathering of members of the university and local communities aims to spark conversation and raise awareness of different cultural experiences to encourage a sense of belonging for all.

A play commissioned by Manchester Confucius Institute and brought to you by The Business Confucius Institute at the University of Leeds.
