When an upper-class European girl is found murdered on the seedy side of Kowloon, ambitious Chinese police detective Tommy Lam is on the case. Faced with corruption and the prejudice of his superiors, Lam walks a fine line in pursuit of the killer but how far will he go to solve the crime?

A world premiere production, Vertigo Theatre starts its season with a bang with the gripping crime thriller, Nine Dragons. Written by Jovanni Sy and directed by Craig Hall, this new Canadian production was developed by Vertigo Theatre, Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, and Gateway Theatre. And to help showcase underrepresented voices in the theatre, look for the Asian Heritage Foundation’s Missing Chapters exhibit on display in the lobby.

Nine Dragons runs September 16 to October 15, 2017 at The Playhouse at Vertigo Theatre (115 9th Ave. SE). Previews run September 16 to 20 with the official opening September 21.
