A beautiful giant cricket is exploited by an ant, stewardesses 30,000 feet in the air speak to boat people in the Atlantic, a tooth lands in a bowl of soup, and a dead boy is carried thousands of miles home on a river. Wielding a dreamlike kaleidoscope, making and remaking connections that span the globe, playwright Roland Schimmelpfennig tells The Golden Dragon’s tragi-comic tale of globalization. It’s set in your local takeout, wherever it — and whomever you — might be.
“…both artful and accessible, that zooms in on a global village that’s astonishingly feudal in its own way, and brutal in the inequality of its sexual politics.” —The Globe and Mail
