Nanjing is set in England, China, Malaysia, Japan, Germany, the USA and the Isle of Man.
It comes to the Royal Court as part of a tour of the seven countries which make up its story.
“Can I ask you to do something for me?
Shut your eyes, just for a moment, and count on your fingers all the things you would be willing to die for.”
This is a personal response to the 1937 Nanjing Massacre, otherwise known as the Rape of Nanking.
British Chinese writer/performer Jude Christian tells a story about belonging anywhere and nowhere at once, and looks at how our lives are shaped by history.
In an explosive time for political discourse around the world, Nanjing asks: what does it mean to fight hatred and love one another?
