Central Works Presents THE CRAZED, 5/17-6/22

Central Works presents The Crazed from May 17 to June 22.

A new play by Sally Dawidoff based on the acclaimed novel by National Book Award winner Ha Jin, 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, the student 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?

This spring marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of Tiananmen Square. The Crazed joins commemorations around the globe.

"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

The Crazed will be Central Works 42nd world premiere.
