By David Henry Hwang
Directed by Chil Kong
At 2pm, Adventure Theatre MTC offers a free sneak peek of a potential 2020-2021 play, The Dance and the Railroad.
Set in 1867 on a California mountaintop, The Dance and the Railroad tells the story of two Chinese workers who struggle through poverty and hunger to reconnect with the traditions of their homeland. The Obie-nominated play by by David Henry Hwang rejects the stereotype of submissive immigrant laborers, and depicts assertive men who demanded their rights despite great personal risk.
Artistic Director Chil Kong would also like to note that this Obie Nominated Play is a period play about 2 Chinese men in the United States in the 1800’s. Their struggles and the terminologies they used to both celebrate and acknowledge those struggles may not be suitable for all ages.
