Hong Kong in the 1950s. Three young women swear never to marry, pledging their lives to each other instead. Working as amahs in different homes, their paths start to diverge and their resolve is tested.

The Amahs is a tale of friendship and devotion by Roger Lee, co-writer of the award-winning film A Simple Life, and Hong Kong’s leading female playwright Wong Wing-sze, celebrated for her unique brand of humour.

Three of the most respected stage actresses – Louisa So, Alice Lau and Pang Hang-ying – travel back in time with stage director Roy Szeto, to bring back an overlooked chapter of this city’s history as it emerges from postwar poverty to economic boom in the 1970s, witnessed by the laughter and tears of the amahs.
