Tri-Campus Arts: Hijack

IDrama Club, University of Nottingham in China

Hijack

by Cheng Yi

 

Saturday 13 June, 7.30pm

Running time:  approximately 1 hour 45 minutes including a 20 minute interval

Performed in Mandarin with English Surtitles

 

It was a dull Tuesday afternoon at the bank, the staff doing their jobs like any other day.  Out of the blue the scene changes dramatically when a heist occurs, and armed robbers put everyone’s lives on the line.  Strangers are thrown together in a terrifying and absurd situation; and rage, sorrow and laughter bubble to the surface in a suffocatingly small space.  A black and surprising comedy in which the guilty exchange roles with the innocent, and nothing is quite what it first appears to be.

 

The performance will be followed by a post-show discussion chaired by Giles Croft, Artistic Director of Nottingham Playhouse.
