[Veil Widow Conspiracy]

[Veil Widow Conspiracy]

Off-Broadway
Play
Presented by NAATCO (The National Asian American Theatre Company) and Next Door at NYTW

SYNOPSIS: [Veil Widow Conspiracy] is built around nested versions of a story from 1922 Xinjiang in Western China: a political murder mystery dramatized in a 2010 big budget Hollywood film, then amended via DVD extra interviews with the cast and crew, in censorship negotiations with the Chinese government, and finally by two lovers in a futuristic, dystopian Brooklyn, without the means to watch the film, one describing it to the other by memory in the dark. [VWC] explores the slippery tension around what we call the truth, knowing reality and fiction each have an angle, and no metaphor comes without an agenda.

Directed by Aneesha Kudtarkar

Show Times: Monday-Friday @7pm, Saturday @3pm and 7pm
