Chinese New Year is the time to get together as a family, settle old scores and wipe the slates clean. But this year, for the Chens, there’s one thing missing…


Set in modern day Auckland, two actors play ten characters in a play that ignites the burning question all New Zealanders confront; where do I belong?


Written by renowned Chinese-New Zealand playwright Renee Liang, Lantern played a sold out season in 2014 at the Musgrove studio as the first theatre production to be a part of the Auckland Lantern Festival programme.


Starring Chye-Ling Huang & James Roque, directed by Hamish Parkinson & Eli Mathewson.
