Lladron a Llanc (Burglars and Boy)
by Hao Jingfang, adapted by Steffan Donnelly
Two construction workers turn vigilante, trying to right the wrongs of society by burgling the home of a high-ranking, corrupt official. However, once they get inside, it appears they both have very different ideas about justice.
The world premiere of a new adaptation by Steffan Donnelly of Hao Jingfang’s contemporary Chinese play, Lladron a Llanc (Burglars and Boy) - a strikingly universal, tragi-comic take on inequality and justice in our modern society. The first Asian woman to win the Hugo Award in 2016 for her novella Folding Beijing (in competition with veteran writer Stephen King!), Hao Jingfang is a Chinese writer on a meteoric rise.
