‘Director Dan Clarke and his ensemble have achieved a vigorous and compelling theatrical language - nonchalant, downbeat and utterly Australian’ - The Age
'a biting, humorous and confronting play' - Time Out
'a superb cast' - Beat Magazine
In the cramped kitchen of The Golden Dragon, a tooth is wrenched from the mouth of a young illegal immigrant. As the tooth flies through the air and lands in a bowl of Thai soup, the drama in the kitchen comes to the boil. Amidst the hunt for the lost incisor and the calls of food orders, the stories of the local residents bubble to the surface of this innovative play.
In acclaimed German playwright Roland Schimmelpfennig’s The Golden Dragon, men are played by women, women by men, young characters by old actors and old characters by young actors. The results are poetic, brutal, mysterious and touching.
