The Hundred Flowers Project / by R. Sheth


October 16–November 23, 2014

The Midwest Premiere
Written by Christopher Chen
Directed by Joanie Schultz

Digital media becomes the perfect "ally" for a group of actors collectively creating a play about Mao Tse Tung's Cultural Revolution. As their work-in-progress starts morphing into a propaganda play about the play itself, disturbing questions arise as to who, or what, is controlling the narrative.
