Snow In June

The performance is an interesting collage of modern theatre style and traditional Chinese performing arts aesthetics, telling the famous classic story The Injustice done to Dou-E. With extremely simple yet powerful bare stage and three actors only, it combines traditional Chinese opera, live percussion and an intricate story with many roles into a theatre piece.

A child bride to Cai’s family, Dou-E the widow and her mother-in-law depended on each other. One day, Mother Cai was saved by hooligan Zhang Lü’er and his father. The Zhangs moved into Dou-E’s house under pretexts, and subsequently tried to force Dou-E and Mother Cai to marry them. Framed for murder and facing execution after declining Lü’er’s advances, Dou-E swore her innocence with “snowing in June”, a highly unusual natural phenomenon.
