Part of Coventry Welcomes Festival 2021.

Suitable for age 16+

Presented by Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations and Tamara Moore. Developed with support from Ovalhouse and created for NOW Festival at The Yard Theatre. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England. 

Being any kind of foreign in any country is a complicated thing, even if you’re only part foreign. 

Coventry-born writer and director Jude Christian’s acclaimed play Nanjing explores themes of identity, displacement and conflict in a personal response to the 1937 Nanjing Massacre. It has been reconceived for 2021 as a piece of digital theatre with integral discussion. The performance weaves together questions such as:

  • What does it mean to be mixed race? 
  • How can we live together peacefully?

It also encourages audiences to play their part in these discussions. 

The noon and 3pm film and Q&A are entirely in-person. The 7pm film and Q&A will be in-person AND also delivered through Zoom. This booking page is only for audiences looking to book onto the online 7pm session. The in-person audience and the digital audience will merge so the entire event can be experienced live wherever you are.
