To celebrate 110 years of Chinese drama, klpac will be staging the Chinese play ‘Peking Man’. The play – written by Cao Yu in 1940, who’s often regarded as China’s most important playwright – will be directed by award-winning director Dr Deric Gan, who is best known for his production of ‘ The Dawns Here Are Quiet’. This tragicomedy revolves around the collapse of a prominent old Chinese family and is an exploration of the hypocrisies that exist in Chinese high society at the time.
