Do you want to spend a very special Chinese New Year with us?
We promise it will be a unique cultural experience.
We are from Yu Theatre Society, a Queen’s student theatre company that is dedicated to producing the best pieces of Chinese Contemporary plays. This January, we will present The Storm: Festival
The Storm: This show is performed on stage prior to the traditional Chinese New Year. We welcome everyone to come to the theatre to celebrate with us. It's a time when people lay their burden and stress from the last year, embrace a new possibility in the upcoming new year.
The story focuses on a span of 24 hours, strives to present an image that in the context of the era in which the social value system is undergoing a transformation, the suffering experienced by people of different classes and different ideals.
This production will highlight the humanity and the struggling in the Zhou family, rather than the crisis outside their mansion. Zhou Puyuan is the dignified father in the family, who values the virtue of his family member more than anything else. The peaceful order in his family is the bases of his pride. But everyone else, including his young wife Fanyi, his two sons Ping and Chong, feel imprisoned in his ideal household.
From January 10 to 19, we will present 9 shows at the Kingston Grand Theatre. The performance will be in Mandarin for its originality. English surtitles, and a live-band music will be provided. Part of our profit will be donated to Kingston Humane Society.
