Beginning with a chorus line entry of Chinese estate agents and property developers reciting the attractions of their latest skyscraper apartment blocks and offices, you might expect this to be a topical credit-crunch comment on the high-flying members of the Chinese community. and given the array of bamboo poles on one side of the stage and shining steel cylinders on the other, like huge tubular bells, could guess there is going to be a conflict between those who want to go on living a traditional life and the yuppie city slickers. There is a plethora of different accents, from Indian to a slight and very heavy Chinese speech and language patterns but as you go deeper into the play you realise it isn't happening in Britain.
