红铅 The Red Lead

Show Type

Staged Reading


November 2022


Victorian College of the Arts



红铅 The Red Lead is the new Bruntwood Prize winning play by Hong Kong born multidisciplinary artist Roshelle Fong.

In 1542 Ming Dynasty China, being an ‘elegant woman’ in the Forbidden City was an honour, a privilege, and a daily death by a thousand cuts. The Red Lead 红铅 is an anachronistic portrait of sisterhood, survival and an attempt to rise up.

This staged reading was performed at VCA as a part of the Masters of Writing showcase.
