In the Bay Area premiere of this 2012 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, an Iraq war veteran grapples with personal and family issues, while the motherly moderator of an online support group for recovering addicts and its members struggle to stay sober. Their worlds end up colliding in unexpected ways, as they seek redemption through connection and community. This moving collage of lives in crisis was written by Tony nominee Quiara Alegría Hudes (In the Heights) and receives its much-anticipated regional debut from TheatreWorks Silicon Valley. Learn More

Excellent production by Theatreworks. It is a fast-moving, ambitious play to attempt. The production was not without its difficulties -- mostly in the writing, which need to be worked out. The tempo and the character switches were cleverly staged and wonderfully executed. Highly recommended.
A revealing backstage comedy from the Tony Award-winning author of M Butterfly, this ferociously funny, utterly unreliable memoir chronicles David Henry Hwang’s struggle to define racial identity in the mixed-up melting pot of contemporary America. Part fact, part fiction, provocative yet full of heart, this Obie Award winner is a tale of cultural politics, family fortunes, and artistic integrity, an insightful look at the pitfalls and promise of our “P.C.” world. Broadway star Francis Jue recreates his award-winning performance. (Contains mature language.)
