Behind the Curtain Collage1

BEHIND THE CURTAIN was inspired by the infamous MacLennan Affair in colonial Hong Kong during the 1980s. 

A young police officer found dead.

Five bullets to his chest and a suicide note.

Things do not add up.

This is a play-in-development about the power of public opinion, the accountability of government, and the battle for one’s human right to love freely.
