A wayward Hong Kong matriarch arrives in NZ uninvited for her granddaughter's wedding. Cue cultural misunderstandings, some very confused backpackers and Por Por’s family having to face a few home truths. Expect a few tears as well as laughter in Hweiling Ow’s dazzling performance, in which she plays three generations of one family all at once.

Although the play is fictional, award-winning playwright Renee Liang has drawn from memories of her two Chinese grandmothers to write this loving tribute to families separated by time and distance. The set features images drawn from Liang’s own family album.

Performed in English, the play is suitable for school groups, families (ages 7 and over), those interested in the migrant experience, and anyone up for a warm and funny night of theatre.

Written by Renee Liang, starring Hweiling Ow, directed by Borni Te Rongopai Tukiwaho, with lighting and sound design by Sam Mence and set design by Deborah McGuire.

“A simply staged, gentle one-woman play encompassing three generations, the warm heart of the play is Por-Por - canny, fun-loving, bent double.” NZ Herald .

Cultural misunderstandings and poignant comedy - ‘Under the Same Moon’ – AOTNZ tour September 2016.

Finalist for Best Play, SWANZ Awards 2015.
