The Crazed; a new play by Sally Dawidoff based on the acclaimed novel by Ha Jin
Central Works at the Berkeley City Club
Berkeley, CA
Share this event:

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

Written by Sally Dawidoff
Based on the novel by Ha Jin
Directed by Gary Graves

Featuring: Perry Aliado, Jeannie Barroga, Will Dao, Wes Gabrillo, Randall Nakano (member AEA), Carina Salazar, Louel Senores.  Production: Tammy Berlin, Alandra Hileman, Vanessa Ramos, Gregory Scharpen
