Rapscallion presents… The Red Court
April 29 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm| 8/10
THE RED COURT tells the story of a real-life 21st century Chinese Macbeth. The play meshes Shakespeare’s tragedy with a story of scandal, corruption and murder that rocked China and gripped the world.
In 2011, China’s Premier-in-waiting was popular, charismatic and very ambitious. His rise to power seemed unstoppable. Even the fortune-teller had predicted his destiny. What could possibly go wrong?
The Red Court is the winner of a national playwriting competition run by the Confucius Institute at Sheffield University. It appears at Zion prior to a tour to China.
The Red Court incorporates elements of Chinese theatre, and is performed in Rapscallion’s signature theatrical and energetic style.
“…a skilled and flexible cast…a crisply directed and tightly written demonstration of all the theatrical skills” ****
