Mr. Lee wants to write a memoir about his political life,
while Mrs. Lee cannot forget how they fell in love by the sea.
Mdm. Tan is on her way to a date that is 60 years late,
but Old Kim worries that he will not reply to all those letters in time.
Old Max holds a solo concert in his heart
as Er Ma captures the joyful tears in his camera.
Mdm. Teng pretties herself in front of a mirror all day,
and Xiao Ding loves a good banter with anyone who would listen.
Eight senior citizens converge in a retirement home. They feast on food and medication; they sing and they fight. And through it all they show us the pain and beauty of life. This play is an ode to autumn as much as it is a poem on the courage of living.
Two-time award-winning local director Nelson Chia directs this masterpiece by renowned Taiwanese director Stan Lai. And for this much-anticipated event, Nine Years Theatre has gathered eight veteran actors of the local Mandarin stage with members of our NYT Ensemble Project to bring to you a unique Mandarin theatre experience.
Directed by Nelson Chia.

"Drink and Talk" Sessions
NYT strives to continuously engage our audiences. We believe that audiences should not merely consume art, but also be offered the opportunity to discuss art. As such, Drink and Talk sessions - a casual post-show dialogue over drinks - are held after every performance of our play.
