A contemporary New Zealand tragedy with its eye on our relationship to Asia and big business, Yellow Brides is a welcome return to the stage for this outstanding and versatile writer whose previous plays include Shuriken, Billy and Casement.
Yellow Brides is a powerful work giving the Medea story a contemporary setting. Businessman Jason's Asian bride Queenie has much from her own culture to offer relatives and friends in her new home of New Zealand. What have they got in return to offer Queenie?
The Adam Playreading Series readings all start Sundays at 3pm, and are followed by a talkback session with the writer, director and actors. Each play has been matched with top professional actors and directors, who will spend two days rehearsing and presenting each reading of the play at Downstage.
