Young Jean Lee

Published by Theatre Communications

Two plays by the award-winning dramatist, the first Asian-American female playwright to be produced on Broadway ...

Straight White Men

It’s Christmas Eve, and Ed has gathered his three adult sons to celebrate with matching pajamas, trash-talking, and Chinese takeout

But when a question they can’t answer interrupts their holiday cheer, they are forced to confront their own identities

REVIEWS

"A raucous comedy" ~ Entertainment Weekly

"Gripping ... A play of ideas, and very timely ideas at that" ~ New York

"Smart, funny and semantically loaded" ~ Molly Grogan, Exeunt Magazine

"A thought-provoking piece that fires in many directions at once" ~ Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post

"Goes far beyond cheap satire, ultimately becoming a compassionate and stimulating exploration of one man's existential crisis" ~ Charles Isherwood, New York Times

"The twisty, turbulent, argumentative work of Young Jean Lee … will make you flinch, but it’s hard to look away… Lee has always been interested in exposing how we perform our identities. But in Straight White Men, she drills into something more core. Shuck off, subvert, cleave to your gender or race all you like, but a universal horror of weakness remains – a collective orientation toward status, power, control' ~ New York Times

Untitled Feminist Show

Six charismatic stars of the downtown theatre, dance, cabaret, and burlesque worlds come together to invite the audience on an exhilaratingly irreverent, nearly-wordless celebration of a fluid and limitless sense of identity.

REVIEWS

'Young Jean Lee is, hands down, the most adventurous downtown playwright of her generation' ~ New York Times

"In a scant (and scantily clad) hour, Lee and her gutsy danc­ers try on a dizzying variety of modes and masks to shake up gender norms" ~ David Cote, Time Out New York

'Young Jean Lee’s Untitled Feminist Show is one of the more moving and imaginative works I have ever seen on the American stage… what makes it so transcendent is its delicious ability to alternate the pain of being different with a sense of humor about lives not lived among the status quo" ~ New Yorker
