New play: Forgotten 遗忘

PLYMOUTH

“The foreign devils will be entranced by our performance and line our path back to Shandong with gold and cherry blossoms…”

1917. Shandong Province, Northern China. Times are tough in Horse Shoe Village. Old Six and Second Moon struggle to earn enough to feed their young child. Big dog struggles to overcome opium addiction and for Eunuch Lin, the fall of the Imperial Dynasty couldn’t have come at a worse time. Could a fierce war away in Europe present an opportunity to put both themselves and their struggling nation on its feet?

遗忘 means ‘Forgotten’. ‘Left behind’. ‘Erased’.

Forgotten 遗忘 is inspired by the little-known story of the 140,000-strong Chinese Labour Corps who left everything and travelled halfway around the world to work for Britain and the Allies behind the front lines during World War One.

Written by Daniel York Loh.
Directed by Kim Pearce.

  1. Hi All;

    Wow;

    A lot of smoke and moody looking; ‘ACTORS’; this will really be posted all over; ‘You-Tube’; do these statues actually get a few spoken lines; OR do we have to wheel out
    Burt Kwok; David Yip and Benedict Wong!

    Guess which actor is actually dead; my guess all of them!

    P.S.

    Where’s Gemma Chan and her facial prosthetics!
