The Orphan of Zhao starts 30th October 2012 – Royal Shakespeare Company

Dark clouds are gathering over the Court of the Emperor of China. Under the spell of his malevolent Minister Tu’an Gu, the Emperor sinks into a haze of decadence, leaving his courtiers in despair and the people at the mercy of his every whim.  Those who challenge them are swiftly punished. But one small hope remains: the hidden child, the Orphan of Zhao.

From 30 October, RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran directs The Orphan of Zhao, a sweeping story of loss, courage and hope from ancient China, in the Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon.

Sometimes referred to as the Chinese Hamlet and tracing its origins to the 4th century BC, The Orphan of Zhao was the first Chinese play to be translated in the West. It is directed by Gregory Doran, who recently directed Julius Caesar in Stratford-upon-Avon and London’s West End as part of the World Shakespeare Festival.  This beautiful new adaptation is by James Fenton, an international award-winning poet and playwright who has worked widely both as political and literary journalist and foreign correspondent.

Tickets start from £17 and can be booked online at or by calling 0844 800 1110.
