[Video] When Imaginary Characters Come to Life on Stage

What is it like for a writer to see her imaginary characters come to life on stage? What are an actor’s thoughts when portraying a new character? Writer Yang-May Ooi and actor Julie Cheung-Inhin reflect on the rehearsed reading and panel discussion at the China Exchange in Soho on 06 April 2017.

A few weeks after the first public showcase of Yang-May’s new play Butterfly in Blue Jeans, she has recorded this video diary of her experiences of that evening, along with an interlude from Julie who also shares her thoughts.
