Actors Touring Company & Drum Theatre Plymouth in association with Arcola Theatre present the UK premiere of

The Golden Dragon

Olivier Award winning Actors Touring Company present the British premiere of Germany’s most successful new play.

 “Number 6: Thai soup with chicken, coconut milk, Thai ginger, tomatoes, button mushrooms, lemon grass and lemon leaves (hot).”

The Golden Dragon by Roland Schimmelpfennig is a tragicomic tale of globalisation set in your local takeaway. Five actors play a huge cast of characters – a Chinese migrant with toothache, Thai/Chinese/Vietnamese cooks, the man from the shop next door, two air stewardesses plus a cricket and some ants – in a deconstructed soap opera that moves everywhere and nowhere.

ATC returns to Edinburgh following hit shows Ivan and the Dogs, Eurydice, and The Brothers Size in Ramin Gray’s inaugural production as artistic director.
