East West Players presents a reading of Yilong Liu’s June is the First Fall.

After running away from his family for almost a decade, a Chinese American gay man returns home to Hawaii, where he has to confront his sister and father about a dark family history that reopens old 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. He is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America and EWP’s own David Henry Hwang Writers Institute. Liu was born and raised in Chongqing, China.
