Pythonland depicts the Chinese “Genesis” mythology in a way that combines both traditional Chinese theatricality and modern physical presence. The play is divided into two parts: Amnesia and Pythonland. The first part tells the story of worldwide rain and blood narrated by a doctor on his journey to a patient. In the second part, the protagonist The Great General of Pythonland meets an old man and is told the story that has happened between them in their previous lives.
