The First Night
by Shinehouse Theatre (Taipei)

Li-Fang Du grew up in an one parent family. Despite her mother's disagreement, she dropped out from school to work in order to take care of her mother and her younger sister, Li-Sing. A few years later, she built up her career in China, but also left a conflict with her mother; the younger sister, who shares every conversation with Li-Fang, found herself stuck between her two closest family members.

The sudden death of mother forces the oldest sister to hurry back home and rejoin with her younger sister. This is the last night of their time with mother, as well as the first night of losing their mother.

“The First Night” is a production by Shinehouse Theatre, staged as an apartment, in which the audience can watch the performance in a close-up distance, “as if we walk into a stranger's home,” and have a glance on the sister's bittersweet memory.
