Æ Ì‰ is pronounced ‘er’ in Vietnamese, meaning, In. It is a very special day in Deptford…Her Royal highness the Queen is coming! What to wear and how to prepare? Granny Dumpling is cooking up her best batch of dumplings as she fondly reminisces meeting Her Royal Highness from when she first came to Deptford in the early 90’s. But what are the rest of her East Asian neighbours doing for this Royal affair?
You are duly invited to join us (in) Æ Ì‰ Deptford to go on a humorous and heart felt journey, taking you to the shops and the secret spots of Deptford, offering a window into the lives of the rich East Asian community living here. Join us as we roll out the red carpet and explore these hidden voices as they eagerly await her royal visit and contemplate ideas of Britishness and of what is now their new home (in) Æ Ì‰ Deptford.
A promenade performance starting at the Albany foyer. Show time approximately 1.5 hours.
Post show talk Sunday 17 September, 4pm.
