David is a successful New York casting director and Collin is a hot young star on the rise. The attraction is chemical, but the combination is potentially deadly. A love letter to the theater where the highs and lows of romance echo the highs and lows of a life on the stage.

Meet Fitz, EB, and Marie: three of the most fun, least motivated girls you'll ever see. They live in Stockton, California: birthplace of the art world darling Kara Walker and the graffitist Neck Face, home to an ok-but-not-great farmers’ market, and also the largest city in America ever to declare bankruptcy. Watch Fitz being haunted by Kara Walker’s maniacal talking silhouette! Watch EB reform the Stockton school system! Watch Marie follow Neck Face down a trail of graffiti that ends in wet paint…
Sunday 12/16 @ 8pm - Orphans of the Nightingale of the Desert: a Bollywood Spectacular... a benefit for Ma-Yi Writers Lab
Orphans of the Nightingale of the Desert: a Bollywood Spectacular
A benefit performance for the Ma-Yi Writers Lab
One night only! Sunday 12/16 at 8pm
at The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre
The Pershing Square Signature Center
480 W. 42nd Street
Ma-Yi Writers Lab, the largest collective of Asian-American playwrights in the country, brings you their collective response to the recent casting controversies over The Nightingale, Orphan of Zhao, Pippin: a Bollywood Spectacular, and Priscilla Queen of the Desert. (If you don't know, look 'em up!) This will be a benefit performance to support Lab activities, performed in association with several members from AAPAC (Asian-American Performers Action Coalition).
Where some have channeled their energies into panels, or letters, or blogs, the Lab is responding the best way they know how: an evening of minimally-rehearsed on-book satirical shorts. And we're doing it on the set of Golden Child, written by none other than the Godfather of Asian-American Theater David Henry Hwang.
With special thanks to David Henry Hwang and the Pershing Square Signature Center... featuring plays and opinions in no way associated with David Henry Hwang or the Pershing Square Signature Center.
Tickets are just $5! (Or donate more if you value what we do.)
