DAVID HENRY HWANG
Eminent American playwright David Henry Hwang, best known for the West End success of M BUTTERFLY in the late 80s, has written many award-winning plays for Broadway since then – most recently CHINGLISH, and YELLOWFACE.
With ARTS COUNCIL ENGLAND support, True Heart Theatre is producing the most autobiographical of his plays GOLDEN CHILD at the New Diorama Theatre – 2-12 October – for its London premiere.
True Heart chats to David Henry Hwang about his illustrious and inspiring career in playwriting and then opens up the floor for a Q & A with the artist.
…AND featuring a 30-minute showcase of a devised performance
in Cantonese & English based on
BEHIND THE CURTAIN
(with English surtitles)
A young police officer found dead.
Five bullets to his chest and a suicide note.
Things do not add up.
This is a play-in-development about the power of public opinion, the accountability of government, and the battle for one’s human right to love freely.
