    by In-Sook Chappell. Based on the memoir Sweet Mandarin by Helen Tse

    I invited you into my past... And you invited me into your future.

    Helen has grown up in the UK, but always felt a piece of her story was missing.

    Visiting her mother’s birthplace of Hong Kong for the first time, she is determined to find out who she really is and where she belongs. Amidst the skyscrapers and bustling streets, she meets her grandmother, Lily Kwok, and steps into her past where she discovers shocking family secrets that will change her life forever.

    This stylish and evocative new play by award winning writer In-Sook Chappell, tells the extraordinary story of the women behind the famous Manchester restaurant Sweet Mandarin. Based on Helen Tse’s bestselling family memoir of passion, sacrifice and survival across three generations held together with one lifeline- food.

    The performance includes live cooking on stage.

    “A gripping tale of struggle, laughter, love and food … with a universal story of survival that will move your soul” Ken Hom on Sweet Mandarin
