The book consists of a collection of 3 plays. The first play features a gathering of Chinese deities at the court of the Heavenly Emperor on Chinese New Year day. The gods got themselves into a “serious” discussion to try to solve some of the problems that plagued humans on earth. The second play makes a revisitation of the “Red Hill story” and tells a tale involving Merlions and how the “Red Hill boy” comes back in the modern setting. The last play highlights the nature of bird communication through their ordinary business of daily living such as in getting their meals or in how they have to make “special” calls or passwords in identifying with the others.
Sandy is interested in heritage matters and is an animal lover. Uresh and Ted are enthusiasts of science fiction, mythology and alternate history. The trio hopes all those who read the plays will discover something between the old and contemporary, the mythical and factual as well as what is usually understood as the norm versus the peculiar.
