5 A dystopian drama
TheATre | Yellow Rabbit Nov. 23 to Dec. 1, Young Centre for the Performing Arts
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.
