Lady Sunrise by Marjorie Chan
Set in the condo and casino playground of Vancouver, the hard-hitting new play from multi-award winning playwright Marjorie Chan is a tale of social climbing and the fraying social fabric among the wealthy and hangers-on of the city's Asian Canadian community. Inspired by the Chinese modern classic Sunrise by Cao Yu, Lady Sunrise was originally commissioned by the University of British Columbia.
