Lifeline Theatre presents a world premiere adaptation of China Miéville’s The City & The City, by Lifeline Theatre ensemble member Christopher M. Walsh, and directed by Lifeline Theatre Artistic Director Dorothy Milne (Non-Equity Jeff Award and After Dark Award winner). Inspector Tyador Borlú of the Extreme Crime Squad is assigned to a seemingly open-and-shut case: an American student found dead in the gutters of the city of Beszel. But soon this deceptively simple crime reveals ties to powerful political and corporate factions at the heart of both Beszel and its twin city, Ul Qoma. Forced to cross the divide between two citystates coexisting in the same geographical space yet separated by irreconcilable cultural differences, Borlú must bring to justice the mastermind of the most unusual and dangerous case of his career.
