19 Wentworth Alley, Chinatown by Eugenie Chan

NEW PLAY READING! Yale alum Eugenie Chan layers original material with fragments of actual family documents to explore the world Chan’s Grandfather -- caught between medical studies and his membership in a prostitution tong -- knew.

Drawing on the history of her grandfather, a man caught between his studies as a Stanford medical student and his membership in a Chinatown gambling and prostitution guild in early 1900s San Francisco, Eugenie Chan layers original material with fragments of actual family documents to explore the world Chan’s Grandfather knew — and made — one of high hopes and hard choices. A new vaudeville.

Directed by Jessica Heidt
Dramaturgy by Laura Brueckner
With Bonnie Akimoto, Monica Ho, Lisa Hori-Garcia, Arthur Keng, John Patrick Moore, Beverly Sotelo, Jomar Tagatac and clarinetist Wes Asakawa
