In a tiny Asian take-out, a kitchen worker’s toothache leads to a botched extraction, blazing a trail of intrigue through the dining room and out into the world beyond. Five actors create a kaleidoscope of characters in this surreal and darkly hilarious portrait of migration and human connection.

Written by Roland Schimmelpfennig (Arabian Night, Peggy Pickit Sees the Face of God), one of Europe’s preeminent playwrights, The Golden Dragon makes its New York debut under the direction of Ed Sylvanus Iskandar (These Seven Sicknesses, Restoration Comedy, The Mysteries), renowned for his immersive and whimsical invitation-only theater company, Exit, Pursued by a Bear.
