Jumbo Kids Theatre, a local arts group active in half-mask puppet theatre, will stage its latest production, “That’s What Friends Are For”, in October and November. The play looks at the relationship between parents, kids and their friends.
Have you ever considered that the relationship between parents and their kids may also affect relationships with their friends? Ah Lam isn’t very good at building relationships with friends, and always finds himself being left out socially. When he makes up his mind to solve this problem, he finds out that his best friends are actually his parents.
“That’s What Friends Are For” will be performed in Cantonese. Details of the shows are as follows:
October 12 and 13 (Friday and Saturday) 8pm
