By Jasmine Chen
A Part of The Mother Tongue Project
A rice & beans production in association with Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre
“Don’t wait to learn and don’t wait to ask. Whatever your language is, spoken or unspoken, it can bring you closer to who you are.” – Jasmine Chen
Witness a beautiful multidisciplinary performance by Jasmine Chen, a second-generation immigrant who lost her mother tongue through cultural assimilation. Yearning to reconnect with her late grandmother, she embarks on a transformative journey to relearn Mandarin and unearths lost stories of her grandmother’s past through intimate interviews with her mother. Through powerful music, captivating movement, and poignant storytelling in Mandarin and English, Jasmine finds her place within the legacy of her matriarchs.
Jade Circle is an immersive exploration of cultural identity and intergenerational bonds that will inspire you to rediscover and reclaim your mother tongue.
Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery
Who killed Sir Charles Baskerville? Could the legend of a monstrous supernatural hound be true? Can the case be solved before the family curse dooms its newest heir?
From the award-winning mastermind of mayhem Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor), comes a fast-paced, pulse-pounding comedy like no other. Equal parts adventure and comedy, Baskerville finds Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson attempting to crack their most notorious case.
In this madcap retelling of the ultimate Victorian whodunit, a nimble cast of five takes on nearly forty characters, darting on and off stage almost as quickly as the twists and turns of this delightfully complex plot. As Holmes and Watson race against time to solve the baffling mystery, you’ll find yourself on the edge of your seat, guessing at every twist and turn.
