The Golden Dragon

Written by Roland Schimmelpfennig / Directed by Ramin Gray

Number 6: Thai soup with chicken, coconut milk, Thai ginger, tomatoes, button mushrooms, lemon grass and lemon leaves (hot).

On a typical evening, anywhere in Europe, you walk into your local Thai/Chinese/Vietnamese restaurant, and the whole world is there. Everyone connected to everyone else, through this one place…

The Golden Dragon is a funny and theatrical fable of modern life and migration, whisking you from your local takeaway to East Asia and back, revealing what really goes into that bowl of spicy soup. Are you hungry yet?

By Roland Schimmelpfennig. Translated by David Tushingham.

A co-production with the Drum Theatre Plymouth. Supported by the Goethe Institute London

Press

★★★★ "Even as you’re savouring the humour and invention, you’re choking on the barbed subtext...remarkable theatrical flair."
