Fortune – Sean Wai Keung

A murder with no justice. A biracial writer who is always hungry. An after-meal snack which can predict your future. Fortune is about misidentification, misinformation and misappropriation, and will present a 3-in-1 munchy box of real-life stories for your consumption. Previously showcased at Anatomy Arts Scratch Night, Fortune has continued its development thanks to artistic support from National Theatre of Scotland and culinary support from the Silk Road Oriental Food Brands delivery service.
