A cabaret funeral

When a determined woman chases true love, even Buddha can't stop her. Chuen-Jiau stands before family, friends and loved ones to give a eulogy for her husband Yueh. 

Nobody expects a story spanning four entire lifetimes. But that’s love, isn’t it?

A sweet and funny cabaret funeral that'll take you on a reincarnating journey of love, confusion and hope. Performed in English, with songs in English, French and Mandarin.

Feng is an actor, writer, story-telling singer, and theatre-maker. She graduated from National Theatre Drama School in 2016 and Howard Fine Acting Studio’s full time program in 2017.
