The next Foreign Goods Last Forever II: Visions of England will take place on 25 and 26 April 2017 at Theatre503 and feature the UK premiere of a play by David Henry Hwang. There will also be a post-show discussion on what it means to be English today, or what it means to promote England and Englishness in China.
There was something for everyone in this eclectic mix of new plays from female playwrights, all performed with minimal staging, allowing the scripts, and some great acting, to really shine. It is a pity this was a ‘one night only’ event. A week’s run to allow more people to see an event of this nature would be more suitable. As it was, it was a worthwhile and intriguing event.
