Event Description
By Roland Schimmelpfennig
Translated by David Tushingham
Directed By Karla Boos
August 2–August 26, 2012

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, Schimmelpfennig tells The Golden Dragon’s tragicomic tale of globalization. It’s set in your local takeout, wherever it and whomever you might be.
Starring: Curtis M. Jackson, Gregory Johnstone, Catherine Moore, Aidaa Peerzada, Mark Conway Thompson
