Dim Sum Nights 2013

Dim-Sum-Nights-3

November, 2013
Dim Sum Nights was back in October/November 2013 by popular demand. Brand new and fresh bite sized pieces of theatre were served up with a taste of Dim Sum and Chinese tea. This new round of Dim Sum Nights featured an exciting mix of talented new and established British East Asian writers exploring issues of love, marriage, death and dumplings. This tasty bite sized theatre included different short pieces of new theatre each night by up and coming new BEA writers as well as brand new pieces from last year’s Dim Sum Nights writers. The overall favourite in the audience vote was U-Turnby Simon Wu.
