His Mother's Voice
In the Kingdom of Contradiction - it is raining, yet the sky is blue with sun.
Contrary to a Chinese edict against western influence in music, a courageous woman secretly teaches her young son to play the piano in the home. In setting him on the path to fame as a leading pianist, neither she nor her son expected they would become embroiled in a dangerous confrontation between Shanghai and Canberra. From the birth of China’s Cultural Revolution to the eve of the Tiananmen Square protests, Justin Fleming’s dazzling new play weighs the price of defiance in the face of brutality. His Mother’s Voice is a love story: the love between two young people from different worlds; the love that drives a mother to great sacrifice; and the love of a young man for his country.
