A Story about A Poet is the third originally-written stage play by I-start Theatre. The story is inspired by famous Chinese poet Gu Cheng, who lived and eventually died on Waiheke Island. The poet became depressed and restless after his lover left him. However his wife encouraged and supported him to write a novel, based on the love story about him and the other woman. Our play shows how the process of writing the novel witnesses the complex and unusual emotional journey about love and death.
Directed by Yabing Liu and Shanshan Zhou
