Virtual theatre show 'Rice!' serves a delicious blend of storytelling, food and song

Amanda Ang never expected to embark on a journey of discovering her roots through food when she was cast to play Connie Cheng in a new virtual drama titled Rice!, written by Malaysian-born, London-based actor, writer and performance maker Vera Chok (who wrote the book The Good Immigrant).
