The Dutiful Daughter
by Charles Way
Bi-lingual English and Mandarin Edition
Mandarin translation by Yang Lijun
A group of troublesome actors arrive in a modern city. They tell the story of Ke Xin, princess of the Isle of Joy, who is always obedient until the day the sea brings to her island home a strange sailor, a raving fool without a memory, a man who will challenge everything she believes in.
A timeless tale of love, power and transformation that explores many of the key issues faced by young people today.
