The Ballad of Mulan
Woman, warrior, Legend. For ten years Mulan disguised as a man, has fought for the Chinese Empire. Now the fighting is coming to an end, one last battle and she will be going home – but can she return to her old life, become a woman again. A search for identity in a violent world. From the team behind Edfringe Sell-Out 'The Unknown Soldier' Grist to the Mill and working in collaboration with British-East-Asian theatre Company Red Dragonfly Productions, we bring you the real Chinese heroine that inspired Disney’s animation and live-feature Mulan.
