17 May — 6 Jul 2013
Tiananmen Square, 1989. As tanks roll through Beijing and soldiers hammer on his hotel door, Joe – a young American photojournalist – captures a piece of history.
When a cryptic message is left in a Beijing newspaper more than 20 years later, Joe is driven to discover the truth behind the unknown hero he captured on film. Who was he? What happened to him? And could he still be alive?
“A stunning new play” (Sunday Times) by Lucy Kirkwood (NSFW, Royal Court), with “breakneck direction” (Daily Express) by Lyndsey Turner (Posh, Royal Court and West End), this provocative new play examines the changing fortunes of two countries whose futures will come to define our own.
Chimerica transferred to the Harold Pinter Theatre and ran from 6th August to the 19th October 2013.
