By weaving the tales of Mr. & Mrs Noah, Nu Wa, Chinese Goddess of Creation and Marriage, and Nora and Norman, Ovidia Yu's The Woman In A Tree On The Hill explores love, oppression, violence and freedom. It explodes the myths and archetypes surrounding man and woman, subverts preconceived notions of the age-old battle of the sexes and makes a compelling case for reclaiming an individual perspective. All this, set against the backdrop of a global environmental holocaust.
