Golden Shield

MTC NEXTSTAGE ORIGINAL

Anchuli Felicia King
A riveting new Australian play, Golden Shield sees trailblazing writer Anchuli Felicia King smash the personal against the political in a globetrotting thriller.
Tenacious young lawyer Julie Chen brings her sister Eva on board as a translator in a risky legal battle with international ramifications. Leading a class action exposing an American tech giant's involvement with the Chinese government's internet firewall, Golden Shield, they must put their differences aside to confront censorship, mass surveillance, corporate greed and their own complicated past.

Loyalty, family and language are tested in this Melbourne Theatre Company NEXT STAGE Original production.

Commissioned through MTC's NEXT STAGE Writers' Program with the support of the Playwrights Giving Circle Donors, The Ian Potter Foundation, Naomi Milgrom Foundation, The Myer Foundation, Malcolm Robertson Foundation and The University of Melbourne.
