Watch our semi-staged reading of Rescuing One’s Sister In The Wind And Dust, presented by Anthony Lau. This performance took place at the Almeida on 21 May 2021, as part of Six Artists in Search of a Play.
In a haunted world of illusions and transactions, where a mother can sell her daughter into the life of a courtesan, Yinzhang is lucky to have the older, more experienced Pan’er as her sworn sister. Seductress, adventurer, trickster, Pan’er will stop at nothing to save her sister from a disastrous marriage.
