Chimerica is a provocative new play and a triumph of storytelling which examines the changing fortunes of two countries whose futures will come to define out own.
Chimerica is a drama sparked by the Tiananmen square protests in China 1989. As tanks roll through Beijing and soldiers hammer on his hotel door, Joe Moore, 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.
