Hunger is set in a rural village and a regional capital in modern China and deals with a family's struggle to make sense of their son's suicide, which he committed after a shocking crime. The couple is split over the question of whether to perform a minghun, a traditional ceremony in which two corpses are buried in a combined wedding/funeral ceremony to send the soul into the afterlife with a partner. It is about the collision of modern secular China with "superstition," and more broadly about empathy and forgiveness in the most trying of circumstances.

A post-show artist/audience dialogue will be led by Tony and Obie award winning playwright, screenwriter and librettist David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly, Chinglish, Kung Fu).
