About this title


The world famous actor/director tells the personal story of a remarkable theatrical and political event--his 1988 production of an all-Chinese version of "The Cain Mutiny Court-Martial" in Beijing

From Library Journal:

Assisted by photos and a preface by his wife, the film star recounts his experiences directing The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial at the People's Art Theater in China in 1988. Heston, whose politics are no secret, was invited by the People's Republic during its most open period, prior to the confrontation in Tiananmen Square. He offers perceptive, intriguing comments on the difficulty of mounting a Chinese-language production and of interpreting a naturalistic drama for people steeped in a nonrealistic theater tradition. Not as substantive or well written as Arthur Miller's "Salesman" in Beijing ( LJ 4/1/84), the book is long on charm but short on details about China and the Chinese. Recommended for theater buffs and Heston fans.
