Toronto Life - - Culture -

In a post-apoc­a­lyp­tic world torn apart by racial war­fare, a man and woman strug­gle to gain en­try to a gated Chi­nese utopia, Rich-Man Hill. As they per­form a se­ries of in­creas­ingly dis­turb­ing tests to prove their wor­thi­ness, they start to ques­tion the con­se­quences of con­form­ing to the com­mu­nity’s uni­fy­ing ideal. A provoca­tive new play by emerg­ing Chi­nese-Cana­dian troupe Silk Bath Col­lec­tive, Yel­low Rab­bit pays homage to the dystopias of The Hunger Games and The Handmaid’s Tale, ask­ing what hu­mans are willing to sac­ri­fice to be­long. Per­for­mances are in English, Man­darin and Can­tonese, with sur­titles.
