Fresh Off The Page Reading - Remnants Of The Silk Makers' Ghost

Remnants of the Silk Makers' Ghost by Dawn Cheong

Remnants of the Silk Makers' Ghost by Dawn Cheong

Runner up in the 2012 NZ Adam Play Awards, Dawn Cheong's Remnants of the Silk Makers' Ghost takes place in an isolated British household in Malaya during the 1940s, occupied by three Cantonese maids and their mistress. The daily lives of these women are put to a standstill when an unexpected Japanese man mysteriously turns up injured on their doorstep.

"Remnant's of the Silk Makers' Ghost is ultimately a story about how these women, regardless of race or social class deal and experience the effects of love, loss, sacrifice and boundaries in an ever changing Malaya."
