Lao She famously taught at London's School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in the early 20th century, seeing cross-cultural conversations that would become evident in his future work.

In this performance, we watch as the characters grapple with their sense of place and role in contemporary society, and struggle to make sense of the changes happening around them.

'I love this country, but who loves me?'

The production comes to London straight from a successful Edinburgh Fringe run, and is performed in Mandarin Chinese with English surtitles.
