We Won't Pay! We Won't Pay! June 29-July 3rd

My newest show is coming to Hong Kong and opening at the end of July. It was produced with the Italian Chamber of Commerce for Hong Kong and Macau and the production manager is Joni Griffin whom you've had read so much about. It opens on Wednesday at 8pm and closes on the Sunday matinee at 3pm. Would love to have all my blog readers attend! It is a great show that talks about hunger issues, middle class rebellion, working hard and barely getting by in hard economic times. Very poignant for today's society despite the fact it was written in the seventies. It was written by Nobel Prize winning author, Dario Fo who won his prize for projecting the ancient clown into modern politics without losing any of the gags for sake of political message. He makes us laugh and he makes us think.

Come see a great show with an international/ multicultural cast, fun physical prat and a great message!

  1. Hi Meaghan,

    I hope you are well.

    My name is Sarah McGrath, and I came across your blog as I was looking for information about teaching English as a foreign language through drama/theatre, in HK, on behalf of my cousin. She is an experienced performer and went to a well-respected performing arts college in the UK, however, she is looking for an opportunity in HK.

    I can see from your blog the fantastic work you do, and wondered if you would be able to give me any advice for her? All ideas greatly received.

    Many thanks Meaghan.

    Best wishes,

    1. Hi Sarah,
      Sorry for the late reply. I've changed blogs so this one I don't check as often. Hong Kong is a great place to work as an ESL based drama teacher. Reputable companies that work here are: Theatre Noir, Chunky Onion, Shakespeare 4 All, Dramatic English, and the KG Group. Applications are normally sent via email around March. She'll have to move here during the summer. She needs to save money as the start up costs for living abroad are quite high. I always say do 2 years rather than one because it's a better investment.
