This book contains plays by Genny Lim (Paper Angels, ) Wakako Yamauchi (The Music Lessons, ) Momoko Iko (Gold Watch, ) Velina Hasu Houston (Tea, ) Jeannie Barroga (Walls, ) and Elizabeth Wong (Letters to a Student Revolutionary.) The volume includes an extended introduction, a profile of each playwright, and an appendix. The six plays of this anthology represent some of the best dramatic literature written by Asian American women since the 1970s. Each is a groundbreaking work and addresses in its own way the experiences of Asians in America. All six playwrights are American-born daughters of Asian immigrants, and their voices span the genres of naturalism, impressionism, ritual drama, postmodern collage, and media-influenced episodic drama.
