Letters to a Student Revolutionary
Letters to a Student Revolutionary
Comedy/Drama. By Elizabeth Wong.

Cast: 3m., 3w. (Expandable chorus, multicultural cast.) This powerful and disarmingly funny play is about friendship and political awakening. Bibi Lee is a typically jaded American rebel reluctantly on a "back to your roots" family vacation in China. Desperately, Bibi sets out to find fast food and familiar faces. Instead, she finds Karen, a young, idealistic Chinese girl who wants to practice a little English. From this seemingly innocent chance encounter, these two young women—one Chinese, the other Chinese-American—embark on a charming, poignant 10-year correspondence, cut abruptly and tragically short by the June 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre. This bittersweet tale seeks to make sense of history, how we participate in it and how we are overwhelmed by it. By focusing on the loves and losses, desires and disappointments of Bibi and Karen, the play explores ideas of capitalism and communism, and ultimately becomes a clarion call to remember the price of democracy. Bare stage w/props.
