Renowned novelist Martin Booth followed his father to settle in British colony Hong Kong in the 50s. His childhood coincided with how this city grew to be one of the most prosperous metropolises in the world. He has a direct experience of East meeting West. He passed away shortly after he finished Gweilo - a memoir of his unforgettable relationship with this Eastern gem.

In 2016, Hoi-fai Wu and Micah Sandt adapted this memoir into a box office hit - a bilingual solo performance. In 2018, its revival also met with rave response. We are happy to announce that Gweilo is back AGAIN with the original cast! Get a ticket now to this critically acclaimed solo performance.
