Can greed withstand unconditional love? In the mythical mining town of Jokkhopuri, a young woman's unquenchable zeal for life makes those imprisoned by greed aware of their insatiable need for more. Red Oleanders explores the conflict between good and evil, freedom and oppression, fear and love.

This production uses atmospheric smoke effects and refers to/depicts physical abuse and violence.
