Exhiliarating and refreshing, Running the Silk Road blends East and West, telling a modern story mixed with Chinese myths. In the year of the Beijing Olympics, a group of friends from London set themselves an epic challenge - to run the ancient Silk Road trading route to China, carrying an “alternative” Olympic flame. Once on the road, complications and conflict test friendships and soon threaten their chances of success. Weaving in and out of the contemporary story are magical and timeless Chinese myths. Running the Silk Road was on tour until in June 2008 in a production by Yellow Earth Theatre Company featuring the spectacular Beijing Opera Theatre.
