Pay What you Want

FORTUNE is a show about authenticity and misidentification. Told through the form of fortune cookies, it explores mixed-race and mixed-culture identity, as well as the various joys and sorrows that come from belonging to multiple places at once.

Originally performed at Anatomy Arts in Summerhall, Edinburgh, FORTUNE has gone on to feature as part of the Just Start Here Festival in Dumfries, the Fringe of Colour online and Welcome to My Crying Party by RUMAH Khai.

Development has been supported by the National Theatre of Scotland, Creative Scotland and Tramway Glasgow in order to constantly refresh the narrative to better reflect the times, as Glasgow-based performance maker and poet Sean Wai Keung looks for answers to questions including “are things really getting better for us?”, “what brings me joy?” and, of course, “what exactly does my future hold?”

Content warnings: Described racism, discrimination and violence.
