Open Stage: Scenes From a Yellow Peril
Taking a scalpel to these outdated and orientalist images, Scenes from a Yellow Peril violently smashes performance poetry, documentary theatre and political discourse together to create a kaleidoscopic vision of contemporary identity politics.
A rare opportunity to gain a view into the developmental process behind creating a play, playwright Nathan Joe and director Jane Yonge invite audiences to a rehearsed reading of scenes from their script, as well as a deeper dive into the core questions of the work through a post-reading discussion.
Contains strong language, discussions of violence and sexual/adult themes.
This show is part of our The Civic Club programme, a very special collection of events which sees the audience seated on stage at The Civic.
