Chimerica, a play written by Lucy Kirkwood and surrounding the famous Tiananmen Sqaure ‘Tank Man’, makes its way to Sydney this year.

Chimerica premiered at London’s Almeida Theatre in 2013 and has since received positive reviews from The Guardian and The Telegraph.


In his first piece as Sydney Theatre Company artistic director, Kip Williams will oversee the play set over two decades in Beijing and New York. It features Jason Chong from Netflix’s Marco Polo and Geraldine Hakewill from Channel 7’s Wanted.

Chimerica will run from Monday February 20 to Saturday April 1 at the Roslyn Packer Theatre.
