Rosie Thomson- Shangri-La

Rosie is playing the role of Sylvia and Hope in the production of Shangria-La at the Finborough Theatre from the 12th July until the 6th August.

Part of the Finborough Theatre’s summer season of new writing, the world premiere of a first play by an exciting new playwright, Shangri-La by Amy Ng and it will be directed by Charlotte Westenra.

Shangri-La is not a myth. Shangri-La is a place. The Himalayan foothills of China’s Yunnan Province were officially renamed ‘Shangri-La‘ in a successful bid for the tourist dollar.

Bunny, a young indigenous woman, has witnessed her family’s livelihood destroyed by mass tourism. She dreams of escape — as a globe-trotting photographer. Nelson, her liberal Chinese boss, dreams of a new kind of tourism that’s sustainable and enables genuine cultural exchange. Their white Western clients yearn for escape, for the touch of something authentic. These desires collide head on in Shangri-La.
