From Shore to Shore Flyer

Three stories, three lives, three journeys to find a place to call home.

Cheung Wing is escaping from war, Mei Lan’s had enough of the potato peeler and Yi Di wants the impossible; her parents’ approval. Taking place at the Palace Garden restaurant over a delicious two-course meal, From Shore to Shore blends English, Mandarin and Cantonese to tell the stories of Chinese communities living in the UK.

Award-winning writer Mary Cooper and director David K Tse have woven these tales of love and loss, struggle and survival into a powerful drama told alongside great food and live music.

Presented in partnership with Northern Stage, The Confucius Institute at Newcastle University and Palace Garden restaurant.
