Romance of Mistakes is a pantomime of a series of seemingly unfortunate events that resulted from mistaken identities and misrepresented love. Liu Yuyan chanced upon a scholar Bian Ji who was selling his calligraphic writing at the Flower Festival. It was love at first sight for the maiden and the scholar! Feeling excited, Yuyan rushed home to inform her parents of the wonderful news. Alas! What seemed like a simple affair became a complex love game when instead of inviting Bian Ji over to discuss the marriage, the muddle-headed housekeeper invited the tyrant, Zhou Tong!

In celebration of her 10th Anniversary, Paper Monkey Theatre proudly presents Romance of Mistakes with a full cast of beautifully handcrafted Thunderbolt Puppets from Taiwan! Adapted from a classic Beijing Opera, this Mandarin musical comedy is written and directed by Singapore's well-known puppeteer, Benjamin Ho, with music composed by the talented Liong Kit Yeng. Come for a show packed with good fun and lots of laughter!
