A vivid ghost (and love) story
This thrilling update of a classical Chinese drama into a modern ghost story explores the legacy of trauma, the heart of injustice and the lengths to which we go for love. Sentenced to death for a murder, a young woman (Jessica Ko, Hannah and the Dread Gazebo’s shape-shifter) swears vengeance before her execution, cursing her city from beyond the grave to a catastrophic drought. Three years later, a wealthy businesswoman visits the parched, locust-plagued city to take over an ailing factory. When her young daughter is tormented by a mysterious apparition, locals are forced to face a past that no one wants to remember. Directed by Justin Audibert, who helmed the Royal Shakespeare Company’s hit 2017 premiere of this haunting play by Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig.
