* Required Fields


Plagued by the success of his first book and haunted by his past, Sin Hwang arrives in Hong Kong with some unusual cargo and a lot of emotional baggage. Featuring a surreal cast of characters, from a foul-mouthed Paddington Bear to a wisecracking Buddhist monk, this sharply comedic and heartbreakingly poignant tale of self, familial, and spiritual discovery reflects the cycles from which we must all break free as we find our way.

acquiesce offers rich insight into living between cultures.”—Karen Fricker, The Toronto Star

 “This, strange, funny, heart-breakingly beautiful show gives us a journey of self, family and spirituality that is difficult to put into words.” —Thea Fitz-James, My Entertainment World
