I'm delighted to be taking part in the 2018 Bay Area Playwrights Festival! This year, I'm working on Colonialism is Terrible but Pho is Delicious by Dustin Chinn. Here's the blurb:
Our starter takes place in 19th-century French Indochina, where a native finds herself in the kitchen of a colonial aristocrat. The second serving finds us in 1990’s Ho Chi Minh city as two Americans make first contact with the local breakfast. And for dessert, the charms of gentrifying modern-day Brooklyn. Colonialism is Terrible but Pho is Delicious is a three-course tasting menu of the tension that simmers between authorship and ownership across food culture, told across the history of Vietnamese noodle soup.
There are six fantastic plays in this year's festival - discover the line-up at https://playwrightsfoundation.org/bapf2018. Performances run from July 22 - 29 at Potrero Stage.
