1) Ma-Yi Lab is producing a benefit for the Philippines, to buy new fishing boats for villagers affected by Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda. HELP US BUY BOATS!
The event is called "Mga Kasabihan / Words of Wisdom" and features brand-new short plays written by the Ma-Yi Labbies and inspired by Filipino proverbs, sayings, and malapropisms. It's going down on MON FEB 17 at 7pm thanks to a generous space donation from Playwrights Horizons (416 W 42nd St). Tickets are $35 for general admission and $50 for premium (includes select seating and a 20% discount to Ma-Yi's production of The Wong Kids).
2) I'm on a two-part Maxamoo podcast about upcoming works by playwrights of color. (Mostly in NY but I get in a few national plugs in part 2.) The link to part 1 is below.
3) Rehana Lew Mirza just won the InterAct commission (via NNPN) for a new play about domestic terrorism.
4) Speaking of InterAct, If you're in Philly on Feb 10 I've got a reading of my brand-new play Tiger Style!, which has never been seen outside of Juilliard.
