When three sisters returned after many years to their old family home in Huwei, Yunlin, they found that their uncle, aunt, third great-uncle, and second great-aunt had hardly aged a day; only the passage of time had left its mark on the derelict house. The sisters, initially falling over each other to waive their right to inheritance, in an unexpected series of events were drawn into their second great-uncle's dying wish—the Song family member that performs in the soul-guiding song troupe may receive the family's five million inheritance. The three sisters took on the challenge; with the aim of splitting the inheritance, they started from scratch and restrained themselves in the art of the soul-guiding song. As they searched through the small town, they unexpectedly evoked memories of their long-lost father—a gambler and Taoist priest, and their mother, a professional mourner, and the estranged family ties, at long last, emerged one after another.

The VMTheatre Company

The VMTheatre Company, founded in 2007, is based on the performance concepts and creative structure of New York's musicals and feeds on local culture. The Company looks for realistic themes which are close to contemporary life from a humanistic point of view. It is especially interested in working and developing with young artists in music, dance, literature and theater in the hope of helping to contribute to the evolution of Taiwan's own musical culture through exchanging views and crossover collaborations.

The company expects the audience to witness a piece of genuine human life, not merely a performance. As the actors experience aspects of life through structured speech, dance and music, the productions aim to become an experience that is not only emotionally shared between the performers and the audience, but actually co-created by performer and audience member.

VMTheatre Company is selected as NCAF 2021-2023 TAIWAN TOP Performing Arts Group
