Chapter 2 focuses on Sergei Tret'iakov's futurist technique known as factography (emphasizing the journalistic "precise fixation of facts"), which Tret'iakov himself used to represent 1920s China. The chapter then focuses on the New York production of his play "Roar China," which was the first major Broadway production to feature a predominantly Asian American cast.
