A gripping investigation of journalistic integrity, city planning, and social conscience, "Wild Boar" is a new play from one of Hong Kong’s most acclaimed playwrights. When a controversial professor goes missing, an editor and his student band together to publicize the truth. Old flames spark and friendships are tested in the U.S. premiere of this turbulent thriller about media manipulation, fake news, and who gets to speak for the poor.

Playwright Candace Chong received a twelve-month ACC Fellowship in 2004 to attend classes and workshops in playwriting, observe performances and rehearsals, and meet with playwrights and other drama professionals in the United States.

This exhibition is part of Asia Contemporary Art Week, October 5-26 in New York City.
