Following a sold-out run at the Almedia Theatre, the critically acclaimed Chimerica transfers to the Harold Pinter Theatre for a strictly limited season
Chimerica is set in 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 cryptic message is left in a Beijing newspaper more than 20 years later, Joe is driven to discover the truth behind the unknown hero he captured on film. Who was he? What happened to him? And could he still be alive?

Chimerica is a 'stunning new play' (Sunday Times) by Lucy Kirkwood (NSFW, Royal Court), with 'breakneck direction' (Daily Express) by Lyndsey Turner (Posh, Royal Court and West End). This provocative new play is a 'triumph of storytelling' (Time Out), which examines the changing fortunes of two countries whose futures will come to define our own.
The Chimerica cast includes Stephen Campbell Moore, Claudie Blakley, Benedict Wong, Elizabeth Chan, Vera Chok, Karl Collins, Trevor Cooper, Nancy Crane, Sean Gilder, Sarah Lam and Andrew Leung.
