Denied the sun, enduring a life bereft of hope. Imprisoned in an eighteen-year arranged marriage, what happens when a Chinese woman falls in love with her stepson? Why does a girl leave university to become a courtesan? How can you reconcile primitive passions, sexual deprivation and a defiant courage for life? After losing love and dignity is death the only escape? Inspired by legendary Chinese playwright Cao Yu, these themes are explored in a dynamic production bringing together the characters and stories of China's four most famous modern theatre works in one hour. Ages 14+.
