Hong Kong Arts Festival New Play Selection 2015 Inspired by Gustave Le Bon’s prophetic 1894 study of crowd psychology The Crowd A Study of Popular Mind and Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People, The Crowd is a searing play by China’s most produced living playwright Yu Rongjun. Set in Chongqing, Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, from the Cultural Revolution to the present day, The Crowd pitches the forces of irrational mass frenzy against the powerless struggle of the individual—with tragic consequences. This daring play investigates one man’s struggle to seek justice at all costs; and culminates in a rendezvous on a fateful day in Hong Kong. Will revenge settle old scores or open up new wounds?
