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.

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.
