Nanjing - Birmingham Rep
Dates & Times
There are currently no events listed for this show.

Can I ask you to do something for me? Shut your eyes, just for a moment, and count on your fingers all the things you would be willing to die for.

Nanjing is a monologue about identity, flawed heroes, and the consequences of war. It is a personal response to the Nanjing Massacre of 1937, frequently referred to as the Rape of Nanking.

Simultaneously delicate and epic, this poignant direct address explores what it means to be mixed-race, and how it feels to belong both anywhere and nowhere. In an explosive time for political discourse around the world, Nanjing excavates what it is to love one another while fighting hatred, and how we can make sacrifices for pacifism.
