A Chinese-language adaptation of the play Desire Under the Elms by American playwright Eugene O’Neill will be held at the National Centre for Performing Arts. In writing the play, O’Neill attempted to adapt elements of Greek tragedy to a New England setting. The play adapts the myth of Phaedra, a woman who falls in love with her stepson.
