SUMMARY

"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 by Roland Schimmelpfennig is a tragicomic tale of globalisation set in your local takeaway. Five actors play a huge cast of characters - a Chinese migrant with toothache, Thai/Chinese/Vietnamese cooks, the man from the shop next door, two air stewardesses plus a cricket and some ants - in a deconstructed soap opera that moves everywhere and nowhere.

ATC’s artistic director, Ramin Gray directs his inaugural production for the company who brought us Ivan and the Dogs and Eurydice.
