Pandas

By Rona Munro

Paperback £9.99£7.99

A romantic-comedy-thriller about the heat of love and the magic of changing perspectives.

Lin Han and Jie Hui have exchanged 536 emails and 72 jpegs, though they've only just met. She's sure he's the man she could fall in love with, if only he'd do it first.

But Jie Hui's a little distracted. When his business partner gets shot, things start to get very complicated – especially when he realises his heart is broken.

Meanwhile, Madeleine finds herself falling for James, the most attractive man she's met in years. And the feeling seems to be mutual. It's just a pity he's the policeman questioning her about the shooting of her ex-boyfriend…

Rona Munro's play Pandas was first staged at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in 2011.

Press Quotes

'Rona Munro shoehorns a big, daft plot into this charming new romcom. The writing sparkles, the dialogue bounces off the cherry trees that frame the set'

Independent

'True love wins out in Rona Munro's cracking Edinburgh-China romantic comedy'

Stage

'Munro's script has a tremendous fluidity and a bold humour which is, at times, worthy of a Restoration comedy... an absolute gem.'

Telegraph

'It's a knowingly whimsical play that pleases with its sense of neat resolution... eccentric and very funny'
