Produced by

Playwright: Marjorie Chan
Director: Ruth Madoc-Jones


Factory Mainspace Theatre


February 23rd, 2008 – March 16th, 2008


A brazen young writer’s campaign to ensure the past is not forgotten is challenged as she prepares for her book release- transporting us to one of the greatest horrors of the twentieth century. Nanking, China’s capital in 1937, is in the first weeks of invasion. In the midst of the rampage a small group of unlikely heroes band together to create a refuge from the unspeakable horror. A gripping account of survival in the darkest of times. (Cahoots Theatre)
