The Amahs’ Stories
Talk

Want to know how plays are created? Meet the writers behind The Amahs! Roger Lee first brought these overlooked women to international attention as writer of the award-winning film A Simple Life. Now he brings his special kinship with amahs to the stage with playwright Wong Wing-sze, who is known for her razor-sharp humour and observation. They will talk about the challenges of writing together, how they keep a light hand on dramatising this slice of undocumented vernacular history, and the extraordinary women they came across working the play.
