Asian American Women Playwrights:

Showing What Cannot Be Told

Time: 15:00-17:00,May 30, 2019 (Thursday

Venue: Room 115, SEIS (英語學院115)

Language: English

Synopsis of Talk

It is a common instruction to beginning playwrights: "show, don't tell." Performance offers the opportunity to convey meaning -- diegetic, cultural, and affective -- without recourse to words.  But for minority subjects, this is a precarious enterprise: "not telling" an audience that does not share your cultural perspective risks their "not hearing" important information. This lecture focuses on the work of two contemporary Asian American women playwrights (Julia Cho and Young Jean Lee) to consider their strategies of conveying the "un-said" perspectives of minoritarian subjects on the American stage.
