A Central Works world premiere based on the novel by Ha Jin (winner of the National Book Award and two PEN/Faulkner awards) about a young scholar coming of age in Communist China on the eve of the Tiananmen Square massacre. |
When the venerable Professor Yang suffers a stroke his student Jian Wan is assigned to care for him. But when the professor begins to rave like a madman, Jian Wan is thrown into a quandary: are these the outpourings of a crazed mind, or is Yang speaking the truth about his past, about art, about how to live a meaningful life?
"A work of enormous intelligence. Piercing, critical, but leavened by Jin's understated prose, The Crazed is a substantial addition to the corpus of a great author." San Francisco Chronicle
