The Sugar-Coated Bullets of the Bourgeoisie by Anders Lustgarten. Directed by Justin Audibert.
Cast: Ashley Alymann. Gemma Chan. Paul Chan. Tuyen Doh. Jessica Henwick. David Lee Jones. Wendy Kweh. Matthew Leonhart. Pik-Sen Lim. Louise-Mai Newberry. Benedict Wong. Gabby Wong. Daniel York.
An epic, tremendously humane play about the world's most exciting society: China. It follows a clutch of compelling and believable people across seventy years of socialism, capitalism and everything in between. From the communes of Maoism to the factories of Shenzhen, The Sugar-Coated Bullets of the Bourgeoisie shows you the complexity of China's relationship between the traditional and the modern like no other fiction has.
