With his new play Incident at Hidden Temple, playwright Damon Chua builds on the success of his earlier work focusing on China in the 1940s with a narrative inspired by real events. Using the historic Flying Tigers squadron as the setting, and the key presence of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, the play throws open a window into the critical role played by American pilots in China during World War II. The mystery hinges upon three Chinese women – two sisters separated by wartime chaos, and the third who unwittingly crosses their paths.
China Institute invites you to a special performance on Tuesday, February 7, 2017, where we will partner with Pan Asian Repertory Theatre to present a post-show panel discussion on the play’s historical setting moderated by Ernabel Demillo and featuring Incident at Hidden Temple writer Damon Chua alongside historical specialists Richard Bernstein and Gene Chin.
China Institute members will receive an exclusive discount on tickets to this performance.
