BROADWAY WORLD -- In this irreverent new genre-bending piece, theatre makers Christopher Chen and Lee Sunday Evans apply their playful imaginations to the work of a Chinese dissident artist. This hybrid work instigates an exploration into the nature of authority and authenticity, inviting you to navigate the labyrinthine relationships between truth and perception, illusionary art and real jeopardy. Chen is an international award-winning playwright whose full-length works have been produced and developed across the United States and abroad. Honors include the 2015-2016 Sundance Institute/Time Warner Foundation Fellowship for theatre, Paula Vogel Playwriting Award, Barrymore Award; Glickman Award and Rella Lossy Playwriting Award. A Bay Area native, Chen is a graduate of University of California, Berkeley, and holds a Master of Fine Arts in playwriting from SF State.
