ChimericaTwenty three years after the event, Joe, a young American photojournalist, is driven to discover the truth behind the unknown hero he captured on film in Tiananmen Square, 1989. Chimerica, a new co-production presented by the Almeida theatre and Rupert Goold's acclaimed Headlong theatre company, written drama by Lucy Kirkwood (NSFW, Royal Court) gets its world premiere at the Islington theatre on 20th May 2013. This provocative piece which examines the changing fortunes of the two countries is directed by Lyndsey Turner ('Posh' at the Royal Court and the West End) who makes her Almeida theatre debut. The play, which runs until 6th July 2013, will be the final production at the Almeida Theatre under Michael Attenborough who steps down as its artistic director after 11 years in the role.

 

About Almeida Theatre

Along with the Donmar Warehouse, the Almeida is the most critically praised theatre in Britain. After Jonathan Kent took over in 1990, it had 14 West End transfers in 12 years, and early booking for tickets became essential - by the time the reviews came out, the run was usually sold out.
