Collection / Anthology

The first major anthology of contemporary Asian American drama from TCG in almost two decades collects the following: Julia Cho’s Durango; Sunil Kuruvilla’s Rice Boy; Han Ong’s Swoony Planet; Sung Rno’s wAve; Diana Son’s Satellites; Alice Tuan’s Last of the Suns; and Chay Yew’s Question 27, Question 28. These are works that readily combine the Medea myth with wave-particle physics; that nimbly move between a field in Kitchener, Canada, and a treetop in Kerala, India; that fully explore complexities of gender, sexuality, and family, demonstrating the cultural and aesthetical diversity of the new generation. Also included is The Square, a choral piece by sixteen leading playwrights (including Maria Irene Fornes, Jessica Hagedorn, David Henry Hwang, Craig Lucas, José Rivera, and Mac Wellman) meditating on 120 years of relationships between non-Asian Americans and the Asian American community, set in a public square of an American city’s Chinatown.
