Yellow Earth Theatre presents
A few years from now, the business world has shifted. China is the leading superpower. Corporate money and power protect a privileged elite who live above the law. Lear looks out from his penthouse across Shanghai’s financial district. He has called a video-conference to decide how his global business empire will be divided amongst his three daughters. Stock prices rise and lives fall as we enter a vicious, visceral world where loyalties are tested and pushed to the limit: sister against sister, servant against master, child against parent. Greed and the desire for control leads us on a trail of deceit, betrayal, lust and murder. As Lear suffers and searches for Taoist enlightenment, what hope is there for love? Matinee: Wednesday 22 November 2pm In English and Mandarin with surtitles.
