SUMMARY

Four plays by the modern classic Chinese playwright Cao Yu (writing mainly between 1930 and the late 1940s) are presented in shortened form and intertwined with each other. All involve difficult and oppressive situations for the women involved – whether a woman seduced by her stepson, a woman marrying a man in an arranged marriage when he is devoted to another, a woman who comes to overvalue wealth via her rich lover and who has no way out when he crashes, a woman whose love is not returned and who is compelled to become a courtesan.

We begin one story, move into another, weaving through all four, a ribbon being passed between the women…
