Thunderstorm (1933), written when Cao Yu was only 23, is recognized as one of his most complex scripts. Widely lauded for its cogent depictions of love and cruelty, the play is a “classic tragedy” brimming with action: there are scandalous liaisons, thrilling twists and heart-breaking falls from grace, all of which echo the social milieu in which it is set. One is drawn into a world of suspense as each character’s true identities and relationships with the other characters are slowly unveiled, resulting in the swift and irreversible collapse of an otherwise respectable household.
The Theatre Practice celebrates its 20th year of illustrious theatre-making with the contemporary classic Thunderstorm! This production boasts a stellar cast of top-notch performers from China, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia that will thrill and entertain the young and old!
Join us for the roller coaster ride that is Thunderstorm!
Our theatre should aspire to objectively critique life, respectfully entertain audiences, and forever explore new uncharted territories. Based on this basic consensus, we shall debate among ourselves vigorously as we support each other loyally.
