'A former French diplomat and a Chinese opera singer have been sentenced to six years in jail for spying for China after a two-day trial that traced a story of clandestine love and mistaken sexual identity…’ The New York Times, May 11, 1986

Based on this incredible true story, David Henry Hwang’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated play weaves captivating theatricality with startling emotional honesty to explode our preconceptions of love and loyalty. Love may be an illusion, but it is an illusion many would die to believe in.
