NINE DRAGONS
By Jovanni Sy
Directed by Craig Hall
A co-production with Vertigo Theatre and Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre

A WORLD PREMIERE PRODUCTION
A stylish murder mystery set in 1920s colonial Hong Kong.

April 12 - 21, 2018 • MainStage

In 1924 Kowloon, a killer is on the loose. Tommy Lam, Hong Kong’s most brilliant police detective, is brought on to investigate. Constantly overlooked by his English supervisors, Tommy feels he has something to prove on this case. The leading suspect, however, is Victor Fung, the son of one of the wealthiest families in Asia. A cat-and-mouse game ensues between Tommy and his mysterious nemesis.

Gateway Theatre is proud to present the World Premiere of this powerful new play by our Artistic Director Jovanni Sy. With Nine Dragons, Jovanni has created a riveting crime drama that will satisfy lovers of classic mysteries and detective stories.

Nine Dragons is also a compelling exploration of race and prejudice in a colonial society. On the surface, Tommy Lam is obsessed with tracking down a killer in his native Kowloon. In immersing himself in the opulent and lurid world of Victor Fung, however, Tommy finds himself investigating the mystery of his own identity.
