The Subtle Body

About This Show

In 1702, an eccentric English doctor travels to China with hopes that the medicine of the East holds the key to unlocking the mechanics of the human pulse. But it’s his wife who makes a momentous discovery when she falls for their translator and discovers that there is more than one way to fill the heart.

Following a sold-out engagement in Shanghai, Gold No Trade’s new bilingual Mandarin/English play about mistranslation, Chinese medicine and the complexities of the human heart is a comedy riot!
