Behind the Curtained Door follows three Chinese women of different generations whose friendships prove to be stronger than the lies and betrayals they face together. In a run-down flat in Oldham, Ah Luk is coming to terms with the recent loss of her husband while her neighbour Ping and their niece Yiling attempt to comfort her. It tells the story of how three Chinese women find love and happiness while their lives disintegrate.

Written by M W Sun, this play was commissioned by Manchester Confucius Institute and developed in collaboration with University of Manchester’s Drama department.
