CAUGHT

Caught
Area Premiere
by
Christopher Chen


Presented by the Guthrie Theater

Dowling Studio Theater

May 17  - June 2, 2019

Directed by Rick Shiomi

MEDIA RESPONSE TO Caught:

“As with all Full Circle Theater productions, ‘Caught’ features superb performances and Shiomi’s direction is artful and precise, with effortless shifts from naturalism to caricature.”

- Kit Bix (MinnesotaPlaylist)

 

Katie Bradley “dazzles as the character adroitly subverts the assumptions with the intellectual jujitsu those familiar with postmodernist fanaticism will

recognize.”

 

The action begins “with Brian Kim in a transformational performance as Lin Bo. Kim’s very physical essence seems to organically shift in the duration of this role of a Chinese dissident artist…”

- John Townsend (Lavender Magazine)

ABOUT CAUGHT

In this highly entertaining, dark comedy, Chen applies his playful imagination to the work of a Chinese dissident artist. This hybrid play invites us to navigate a labyrinthine trail between truth and perception, authority and authenticity, illusionary art and real jeopardy.

    

Caught was a huge hit with audiences at InterAct Theatre in Philadelphia and received four Barrymore Award Nominations (New Play, Outstanding Direction, Acting Ensemble and Set Design) and has been produced across the country. Christopher Chen won a 2017 Obie Playwriting Award for Caught. In the most clever and imaginative ways, Chen asks us to question our own assumptions and to look deeper into the issues around us. The play challenges audiences to think about their perspectives and assumptions, to question their own beliefs and values in the search for a deeper sharing of truth, values and understanding.
