Playreading/ Chimerica by Lucy Kirkwood

Our playreading sessions are a fun and informal way to study plays. Parts are shared around as the group read the play and then discuss it. New attendees are always welcome.

For this month’s playreading session we will be reading Chimerica by Lucy Kirkwood.

Tiananmen Square, 1989, as tanks roll through Beijing and soldiers hammer on his hotel door, Joe – a young American photojournalist – captures a piece of history. When a mysterious message is left in a Beijing newspaper more than 20 years later, Joe is compelled to discover the truth behind the unidentified hero he captured on film.
