About the Book
Ga Ting, which means “family” in Cantonese, is a powerful and emotionally charged story about an immigrant Chinese couple trying to come to terms with the suicide of their son, Kevin. When they invite Kevin’s Caucasian boyfriend for dinner after the funeral, the evening devolves into a fiery cultural and generational clash.
Minh Ly’s poignant play explores one family’s struggle to accept their son as he was, not as they wished him to be.
