A pair of siblings have a difficult conversation about what it means to be a daughter and son in a Chinese Canadian family in 姐姐,弟弟 Sister, Brother, a play by Lauren Chang.
Following the virtual performance, audience members will be invited to create their own short plays on the topic of gender discrimination that will be performed by the actors during the workshop. Through theatre, we hope to engage in discussions about gender discrimination in the Chinese Canadian community and beyond.
