Golden Child / by R. Sheth


March 1–May 6, 2007

The Midwest Premiere
Written by David Henry Hwang
Directed by Stuart Carden

Set in China in the early 1900's, the Obie Award winning Golden Child tells the story of Eng Tieng-Bin, a wealthy merchant who returns from abroad filled with Western ideas and Christian beliefs, and hopes of liberating China from its superstitious past.

But in a polygamous marriage riddled with jealousy and suspicion, what will Eng's religious conversion mean for each of his three wives? Can new ideas and old traditions co-exist or are they destined to collide?
