Pek­ing Man

Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Arts & Culture | To See -

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.
