Rescuing One's Sister In the Wind and Dust
- 21 May only
- Almeida Theatre
This semi-staged reading will take place at the Almeida, as part of Six Artists in Search of a Play. In a haunted world of illusions and transactions, where a mother can sell her daughter into the life of a courtesan, Yinzhang is lucky to have the older, more experienced Pan’er as her sworn sister. Seductress, adventurer, trickster, Pan’er will stop at nothing to save her sister from a disastrous marriage. Based on the twelfth-century proto-feminist Chinese classic by Guan Hanqing, Amy Ng’s adaptation Rescuing One’s Sister In The Wind And Dust is a witty, boisterous romp about sisters doing it for themselves.
