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. Written by Lucy Kirkwood, Chimerica was given its world premiere at the Almeida Theatre on 20th May 2013. Now, the play is set to transfer to the Harold Pinter Theatre for a limited 11-week run. 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). The play has been acclaimed by critics and audiences alike and runs until 6th July at the Almeida before opening at the Harold Pinter on 6th August.

 

About Harold Pinter Theatre

The Harold Pinter Theatre's 1881 interior is one of the oldest in London and one of the most charming, in spite of the damage wrought by an ill-considered restoration in 1954. The Renaissance-style auditorium, with its wooden panels, and gold ceiling and wallpaper, still retains many original features, while the unpretentious exterior is the most attractive and unspoilt among London's smaller theatres.
