What's On

How I Met My Dead Husband
 

When a determined woman chases true love, even Buddha can't stop her.

Chuen-Jiau stands before family, friends and loved ones to give a eulogy for her husband Yueh.

Nobody expects a story spanning four entire lifetimes. But that’s love, isn’t it?

A sweet and funny cabaret funeral that'll take you on a reincarnating journey of love, confusion and hope.

如果這就是愛,在轉身就該勇敢留下來

If this is love, be brave to stay before you turn and hide.

(Perhaps Love)

“How I Met My Dead Husband is a crucible of laughter, tears and sickly sweetness...”
