Tom Cavanaugh's ADAM & YOSHI Premieres in China

Award winning writer/director/producer Tom Cavanaugh's full-length stage play, ADAM & YOSHI will World Premiere with the Wedraman Theatre Company of Hong Kong. A ninety-minute comedy is a full-length drama.

The play features a young successful comic book writer who is getting over a divorce and falling deeper in love with Yoshi, a woman who dresses as a superhero and claims to be from another planet. Adam bears with his unhappy home and career, but he learns from Yoshi how to envision a different reality for himself until she reveals her real intention at the end of the play. Themes of masking, unmasking, complacency and bravery are interwoven as Adam's alpha-male persona morphs before our eyes to into the role of a victim in a "catfish" like scam. The Wedraman Theatre Troupe of Hong Kong has been creating theatre in China for nearly thirty years. https://cloud.broadwayworld.com/rec/ticketclick.cfm?fromlink=2211926®id=336&articlelink=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wedraman.com?utm_source=BWW2022&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=article&utm_content=bottombuybutton1
