The Ballad of Mulan

The real heroine behind the Chinese Legend that inspired Disney’s Mulan.

Suitable for Age 10 +

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, we bring you the real Chinese heroine that inspired Disney’s animation and live-feature Mulan.


The team is also performing The Empress and Me, about a Chinese Princess raised in the West, at The Rotunda Theatre during Brighton Fringe.

REVIEWS


★★★★★ British Theatre Guide

‘a brilliant performance… there is always new wisdom to be found even in the oldest of stories.'


★★★★ Tulpa Magazine

‘A powerful exploration of gender, war, and identity, as relevant and timely today as ever. Expect humour, a lot of heart and a refreshing focus on the darker aspects of a familiar tale’


Stage Whispers

‘Michelle Yim is absolutely terrific as Mulan. She holds the stage with a commanding presence as well as charm and warmth.’
