Ancient China,
Modern Humor

Board our coach for a little known San Francisco event! After lunch at a local Chinatown spot, head to the annual play at the Buddha’s Universal Church. For 45 years the community at the church has written, or reprised, produced and acted in an original play. Performed in classical Chinese and modern English, this bilingual production depicts universal themes and values to which everyone can relate. Between scenes take in commentary on the history of the Buddha’s Universal Church which stands on the site purchased by the congregation in 1951. We sill enjoy lunch at the Far East Café and then make our way to the church for the production. This year the epic tale reaches its finale with the play “Will Auntie Face Justice?” This epic tale, The Ming Family Drama, has been underway in cycles for decades depicting universal human drama and humor-this year we will see the outcome. With the disappearance of the young lady, Peony, and the danger to her child who is in at the hands of the jealous Golden Pearl-what fateful scheme will Auntie devise to indulge her spoiled daughters wishes? Join us and see!
