In Cantonese it means family.  Ga Ting (Mar 22-30), playwright Minh Ly’s story of homosexuality and Chinese culture, gets its world premiere in a co-production from The Frank Theatre Company and Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre.

“In Chinese culture and other ethnicities being gay is even more taboo than other communities and it’s important to get a story like this out to show that we exist" - playwright Minh Ly.
