‘A debut with blockbuster appeal … an explosive mix of action, seduction, intrigue and courtroom drama.’
With American companies actively working to build it – stifling political debate in the process – are they responsible, or just doing good business? If they can be prosecuted for working against the promotion of democracy, should they? And if dissidents start disappearing, who should be put on trial?
With interweaving storylines from across the globe, Golden Shield is an urgent legal drama that explores the personal and political ramifications of corporate greed in the global economy. A trail-blazer of contemporary theatre, Anchuli Felicia King finds fascination in the space where technology and tradition meet for this piercing, funny and extremely timely new play.
This World Premiere production will be directed by Sarah Goodes (Switzerland), featuring Nicholas Bell (North by Northwest), Jing-Xuan Chan (Hungry Ghosts), Josh McConville(The Sublime) and Yuchen Wang (Little Emperors).
Commissioned through MTC’s NEXT STAGE Writers’ Program with the support of our Playwrights Giving Circle Donors, The Ian Potter Foundation, The Myer Foundation, Malcolm Robertson Foundation and The University of Melbourne.
