About the Show
Throughout the year, artists, craftsmen and engineers create magic; building the scenic wizardry, forging a mood with light, sound and special effects, all in support of an artistic vision defined by directors, designers and producers. The actors take their bows, but the skilled craftsmen and women who go unseen toil on, driven by the pride of their craft, and a need to create, often moving from theater to theater, following the work where ever it leads them.
But what visions do these artists express for themselves? What personal pursuits of their own go unnoticed by their supervisors and leaders?
David Henry Hwang's GOLDEN CHILD (2012)
A patriarch returns to his traditional Chinese polygamist home, bringing his new found western ideologies he has adopted while away on business. Though these Christian values clash with the Confucian Order that governs his household, they would allow Eng Tieng-Bin to follow his heart, turning his beloved "Third Wife" into his ONLY wife.
His traditionalist 1st wife, power hungry 2nd wife, idealistic 3rd wife, and prized eldest daughter, the "Golden Child", must struggle to either maintain the existing power structure, or adapt to a very quickly changing world. In the end, all will question the price paid for the politics of "conversion."
About the Play
Focusing on a traditional Confucian household during the turn of the century China, the GOLDEN CHILD addresses topics such as polygamy, foot-binding, and contrasts differences in classic Chinese culture with western religious beliefs. Featuring some wonderfully complex, strong female characters, there are four great roles to feature local Asian American Actresses.
It's a powerful and witty script that I've had in the back of my head since my AART days, and fits San Diego's APIA talent pool quite well! And being a bit of a self taught expert on the writing of David Henry Hwang (having performed and directed in multiple productions of FOB, and producing 2004's M. Butterfly, coming back to his writing is always a pleasure, particularly now that he's back on Broadway with his hit production of CHINGLISH.

About the Play
The movie was written by writer/director Joss Whedon, his brothers Zack Whedon (a television writer) and Jed Whedon (a composer), and actress Maurissa Tancharoen. The team wrote the musical during the WGA writers' strike. The idea was to create something small and inexpensive, yet professionally done, in a way that would circumvent the issues that were being protested during the strike.
GAM3RS: The Play (2011)
It packs more inside gamer/techie/webhead jokes into an hour than seems possible without leaving the 'outsider' part of the audience behind, and thus everyone gets to have a good time." – Gregory Wilson, Curtain Up

Dear Miss Breed (2007)
Stage adaptation of the "Dear Miss Breed" book by Joanne Oppenheim, this play sheds light on Japanese American Internment in WWII. Miss Breed's correspondence with children in internment is the basis for the book and the play's inspiration..
About the Play
The San Diego Public Library received a grant from the California Civil Liberties Public Education Program to adapt the book "Dear Miss Breed" by Joanne Oppenheim into a play. Clara Breed was the children's librarian at San Diego Public Library from 1929 to 1945. When her young Japanese American patrons were forced into concentration camps with their families in 1942, Miss Breed became their dependable correspondent, sending them books, assisting with requests for supplies, and through her actions, serving as a reminder of the possibility for decency and justice in a troubled world and illustrates how the commitment of a single person can profoundly touch the lives of so many people. Years later the letters were donated to the Japanese American National Museum. The play and the book by Joanne Oppenheim focus on the assistance and friendship provided by the late Clara Breed these Japanese American youth.
