Presents
Thinking of YU

Written by Carole Fréchette Translated by John Murrell
Directed by Micheline Chevrier
Wednesday, April 24 – Sunday, May 5, 2013

MONTREAL -
Thinking of YU is a play about one woman’s fixation with Yu Dongyue, a young Chinese journalist who was imprisoned for 17 years for having thrown paint on a poster of Mao during the Tiananmen Square student protests. Her obsessive research is interrupted by a lonely single father who mistakenly received her mail and a young Chinese woman who desperately wants to perfect her English grammar. Their unexpected companionship prompts each of them to question the consequences of fighting against injustice. Each comes to grips with their relationship to the world as they wrestle with notions of bravery, change and hope.

With Shiong-En Chan, Danielle Desormeaux and Kwasi Songui
