West End Preview of an English Adaptation of a Chinese Macbeth
Taken from The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and often referred to as the Chinese Macbeth, 'DiaoChan' is an epic tale of lust, jealousy and revenge, and it has been adapted for the stage by nominated British writer Ross Ericson - whose five star solo play 'The Unknown Soldier' has just received much critical acclaim at Edinburgh Fringe 2015.
The production is touring the UK prior to opening at the Arts Theatre in London's West End, so this is your last chance to see the show for a reasonable price.
The Empire is in turmoil and the tyrant DongZhuo, with the great warrior LuBu at his side, is systematically putting to the sword all those who oppose him. But when both DongZhuo and LuBu show a lustful interest in DiaoChan - a lowly singing girl - she comes up with a plan – a plan that would see DongZhuo fall and see her rise to the ranks of the nobility.
Suitable for +12, performed in English and traditional Chinese costumes.
