ANNOUNCEMENT: I’m Just Here to Buy Soy Sauce

PosterJune2016We are delighted to announce our co-production with Pokfulam Road Production: I’m Just Here To Buy Soy Sauce by Jingan Young.

The play has been accepted on the Arcola LAB and the New Diorama BAMER scheme. The first performance dates are below, so note them in your diary!



About the play:
It is estimated that by 2025 China will have invested £105 billion + in British infrastructure, energy, transport but primarily in property. So are the Chinese solely to blame for the UK housing crisis?

Jingan Young’s I’m Just Here to Buy Soy Sauce follows two couples – a pair of cut-throat real estate agents vying for the spotlight as they attempt to sell their latest million-pound property to a Chinese tycoon and a young couple, whose attempt to buy their first home together has left them picking up the pieces of their relationship.

After premiering during the Camden People’s Theatre “Whose London is it Anyway” festival in January 2016 (with support from China Exchange’s Cultivate Programme) the play will now take the debate ultra-local, exploring the housing crisis through theatre, debate, and giving platform to a diverse range of voices. With the housing crisis reaching breaking point, this project aims to ensure that the conversation is heard from both sides, reclaiming the debate about the state of housing in our capital.

Performance dates:

18-19 May 2016 8.30pm at Illuminate Festival at the New Wimbledon Studios

6 June 2016 Old Red Lion Theatre (time TBC)

9 June 2016  China Exchange with a post-event discussion panel (time TBC)

July 2016 #Festival46 at the King’s Head Theatre.

We will keep you updated as more dates are added!
