About Caught and the Volta Festival
Four playwrights. Four directors. Four ground-breaking new plays, staged at the Arcola Theatre.
For its first year Volta International Festival has carefully selected four award-winning writers from across the world to present four new plays, translated into English for the first time. Staged at the Arcola Theatre in Hackney, the plays will be directed by four award-winning UK based directors. The writers are Austrian playwright Ewald Palmetshofer, American playwright Christopher Chen, Swedish playwright Jonas Hassen Khemiri and German playwright Roland Schimmelpfennig.
Chinese artist Lin Bo’s harrowing story of imprisonment has the world standing to attention. His fame, however, is short-lived, as an American publisher begins to question the authenticity of his story. Is he telling the truth or has he been caught? Accusations fly as Christopher Chen’s inventive new play exposes the thin line between fact and fiction, where it is often difficult to tell the difference between the con artist and the conned.
