A Song For Tomorrow

An honouring of our parents’ journeys. An affirmation of hard choices. An elegy that’s told in reverse time. New Harlem Productions partnered with Eventual Ashes to stage Christina Wong’s play, A Song For Tomorrow, at Theatre Passe Muraille for the 2012 SummerWorks Festival.

The pride I feel at producing this moving script is made all the more satisfying because the play was supported by NEPA through OAC’s Creator’s Reserve program and developed with dramaturge Philip Adams (another NEPA stalwart). The team is rounded out by NEPA favourites including a starkly suggestive set by Jackie Chau, striking lighting by David DeGrow and the superior wrangling skills of production manager, Rae Powell.

I can’t hardly wait for you all to see some elegant performances by Jasmine Chen and Jeff Yung, who have been working it out in rehearsal space generously provided by Obsidian Theatre but have also been sighted in character at the T&T night market.

It’s all pulled together by director Gein Wong, whose work we’ve seen recently in Intent City at Mayworks, and will see again when she co-directs the premiere of her own play, Hiding Words (For You), at Enwave in the fall. Check it all the way out!
