A compelling fable of delusion and paranoia in China comes to the stage in The Crazed
, a theatrical adaptation of a novel by National Book Award winner Ha Jin. It's 1989, the eve of the Tiananmen Square protests, and inside a hospital room, a beloved professor is being cared for by one of his students after having suffered a stroke. As the professor raves about women, poetry and the scandalous politics of his former department, the student must determine which statements are real and which are the ravings of a damaged mind. Outside, one of the nation's worst tragedies draws ever nearer, and the central relationship of The Crazed
becomes a gateway to deeper truths about the past, art and what it means to live a meaningful life.
