So you can’t be a native Beijinger, but what price do you pay for your kid to be American?
Let’s risk it all and embark on this “evolutionary journey”
 
In the middle of the night, a husband accompanies his wife to the airport for a business trip to America. During the ride, the driver triggers a heated argument between them about the future of their offspring. The couple had innocently believed that having migrated to Beijing, their son would naturally become a native Beijinger. All three decide to take a big leap of faith, turning everything on its head along the way.
 
The Reader’s Theatre session on Evolution received tremendous feedback. This story’s fast clip and biting dialogue invite the audience to ringside seats in witnessing the birth and demise of a one-of-a-kind “species”. A theatrical experience not to be missed! 

Developed as part of “New Text – New Stage II”, an Ibsen International project for the development of new-writing
