The Guthrie Theater presents a Full Circle Theater production of
by CHRISTOPHER CHEN
directed by RICK SHIOMI
Christopher Chen’s highly entertaining dark comedy doesn’t begin onstage — it opens with an art exhibition featuring the work of Chinese artist Lin Bo. After the audience views his art and takes their seats, Bo arrives and shares stories about his life and work as a dissident artist in China. But when a New York reporter and her editor join him onstage, everything shifts and nothing is what it seems, leaving the audience to question what is real, what is illusion and what is a figment of their imagination.
Established in 2014, Full Circle Theater is dedicated to producing heartfelt, groundbreaking theater that artfully addresses issues of human nature and social justice. Their production of Under This Roof was part of the 2017–2018 Dowling Studio Season.
