Additional Info

All the charm of traditional Chinese romantic theatre is here translated by Aldyth Morris in cogent, modern dramatic terms. Under Jack Landau's fluid direction at the Phoenix Theatre in New York, the play garnered critical tributes. There are two warring camps in China, each controlled by an empress. The favorite son of the first Empress is captured by the second. He is saved from death by the intervention of the second Empress* daughter. After a secret marriage, the young couple have a child. It is the infant who finally quiets the growing war and reconciles the two Empress grandmothers.
