A staged reading of Dim Sum Diaries by Mark Leiren-Young (Shylock) was performed at the Pink Pearl Chinese Restaurant in November, 2017. In addition to a full dim sum dinner, guests enjoyed a silent auction, raffle and talkback session with the playwright himself.  Originally a radio play, told in monologues, Dim Sum Diaries is an examination of various perspectives on how Vancouver has changed or is perceived to have changed, due to the influx of immigrants from Hong Kong. Thoughts and feelings regarding this topic remain as relevant and controversial now as when the play first aired 25 years ago.
