Santayana Li’s Journey to Home is an intensely poignant story based on the playwright’s own youth. Twenty years ago, Li’s mother left her family – Li, her father, and her two elder sisters. Journey to Home charts the youngest daughter’s journey to Taiwan to find her mother after turning 18. That unforgettable experience was also the first time that the mother and daughter spent time together in two decades. This is a moving, thought-provoking coming-of-age story.

 Santayana Li graduated from the School of Drama of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA) in 2011, where she received the Cheung Tat-ming Playwright Scholarship. As a performer, her recent productions include Moses in Love, Cricket in My Life, The House of Bernarda Alba and Gao Xingjian’s Of Mountains and Seas. Her first two plays, Journey to Home and Part Timer, were presented at the Prospects Theatre’s Playwright’s Scheme V and VI, in 2010 and 2011, respectively.

 《愛之初體驗》是一個半自傳式的劇本,講述女主角與在小時候異離,後來移居到台北的母親的一段故事。青蔥與圓熟的生命交融,帶來雋永怡人的劇場感受。

 蕾還在香港演藝學院就讀表演系的時候,在校內的編劇工作坊 (Playwright Lab) 所寫的作品。後來在新域劇團的「劇場裏的臥虎與藏龍」(2010)編劇計劃發表,同年再被香港藝術節選中,成為今屆「新銳舞台系列」的戲劇演出節目。
