New England's leading creator and presenter of queer theater, the Theater Offensive, presents the world premiere of the musical Surviving the Nian. The show will run April 14-May 5 at the Roberts Theatre at the Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts.
The musical follows the journey of Kaylin, who returns home to Hong Kong after a five-year absence to introduce her lover, Asha, and her new life plan to her family. The musical explores Kaylin's relationships and loyalties as well as her ability to deal with her family's own plans for her.
The music and lyrics were written by Melissa Li, and the book was written by Li and Abe Rybeck. The show has been developed over the past four years through the Theater Offensive's Plays at Work Program. It is directed by Patrick Wang.
