Headlong’s world premiere of Lucy Kirkwood’s Chimerica opened at the Almeida Theatre last night (28 May 2013).
The play follows the aftermath of the famous 1989 Tiananmen Square photo, centring on the American journalist who took the photo, who more than 20 years later begins to question the fate of the unknown protester in his shot.
This investigation leads to a deep examination that explores the relationship between China and America, and the influences each country has on the other.
The production is directed by Lyndsey Turner and runs until 6 July 2013.
