To climb up there,
I am willing to sacrifice what’s down under.

“Zheng-he” is adapted from
“Descendants of the Eunuch Amiral”

– by the Singaporean playwright Pao Kun Kuo.

For a very long time, ‘he’ has dreamt of himself as Zheng-he, the legendary Eunuch Marshal who made his 7 voyages to the Atlantic. The dream has been so real that he had to touch himself when he woke up, just to make sure something remained safely there. He began to study the book of anecdotes at great length. Through reading about ‘Eunuch’, he uncovered
the problems of identity and social hierarchy in the modern world. In the end, he became certain that he is the descendant of the Eunuch, Zheng-he.

Many people wish to become Zheng-he.

In the end, they could only become an ordinary eunuch.

QUOTE / REVIEW

“Zheng He mirrors and reflects the reality so precisely that it comes with an after taste of profundity.”

“I have seen many plays, yet few had such a self-centered introduction. They didn’t intrude the audience without any disguise- rather, the cast had pressed in our horizon like an overwhelming surge of black tide. And before everyone had noticed, it was unstoppable.”
