East West Players: A Writers' Gallery Reading

events/EWP-2017march-reading-JuneIsTheFirstFall-YilongLiu.png

FREE

East West Players presents a reading of June is the First Fall, written by Yilong Liu and directed by Jeff Liu.

After a painful breakup, a Chinese American gay man returns home to Hawaii, where he must confront his sister, his father, and himself about an unspeakable past that separated them, and a tender family history that held them together. Inspired by a portrait of Afong Moy, the first Chinese woman to immigrate to the United States, the play explores love, loss, and the struggles of letting go of past wounds.

Yilong Liu’s work has been produced or developed at Kumu Kahua Theatre, New York International Fringe Festival, New York Indie Theatre One Minute Play Festival, Stella Adler Studio of Acting, and Queens Theatre. Born and raised in Chongqing, China, Liu is the recipient of a 2016 playwriting scholarship from East West Players’ David Henry Hwang Writers Institute (DHHWI) in conjunction with Asian Pacific American Friends of the Theatre (APAFT).

Read our interview with playwright Yilong Liu about his play on the JANM blog.
