Presented by: Gateway Theatre
A wold premiere!

Gateway is proud to present the World Premiere of this powerful new play by our Artistic Director, Jovanni Sy. Nine Dragons is a riveting crime drama that will satisfy lovers of classic mysteries and detective stories.

In 1924, Kowloon, a killer is on the loose. Tommy Lam, Hong Kong's most brilliant police detective, is brought on to investigate. Constantly overlooked by his English superiors, Tommy feels he has something to prove on this case. The leading suspect, however, is Victor Fung, the son of one of the wealthiest families in Asia. In immersing himself in the opulent and lurid world of Victor Fung, however, Tommy finds himself investigating the mystery of his own identity. A cat-and-mouse game ensues between Tommy and his mysterious nemesis.

Nine Dragons is also a compelling exploration of race and prejudice in a colonial society. On the surface, Tommy Lam is obsessed with tracking down a killer in his native Kowloon. In immersing himself in the opulent and lurid world of Victor Fung, however, Tommy finds himself investigating the mystery of his own identity.
