The minister WangYun fears for the lives of his family, but when both DongZhuo and LuBu show a lustful interest in DiaoChan - a singing girl of WangYun’s household - she comes up with a plan that could solve both their problems - a plan that would see DongZhuo fall and see her rise to the ranks of the nobility.
Based on the ancient Chinese legend of DiaoChan, part of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and known as the Chinese Macbeth, this is an epic story of lust, jealousy and revenge.
Adaptation by Ross Ericson, performed in English.

“The acting is uneven... Though the story itself is interesting, the play doesn't do justice to the tale. ”
