Cheng Cong, the matriarch of a wealthy Shanghainese family in Hong Kong, is financing the production of a new play in Hong Kong's venerable City Hall. The play is "Two Sisters," a retro melodrama in the vein of Tennessee Williams, written and directed by the trans woman Ouyang An. As the two sisters of the title, the production will star Yuan Xiu Ling (a stage veteran making a comeback five years after retiring from the theater, and one year after the death of her faithless husband Cheng Jun - who was Cheng Cong's younger brother) and He Yu Wen (a smart movie actress making her stage debut, who happens to have nursed a career-long rivalry with her co-star). The production is scheduled to have its first night in one week's time.
