2018 Barry and Bernice Stavis Award

I was honored to receive the Barry and Bernice Stavis Award at the 2018 National Theater Conference on December 7-9 in New York City. A lively excerpt from my play The Paper Dreams of Harry Chin was followed by a discussion, led and moderated by Liz Engelman. During the discussion, I spoke about the real life inspiration for the play, including the Chinese Exclusion Act which led many Chinese nationals seeking to enter the US to buy forged identities, creating a web of secrets, regrets, lies and complications for generations to come.
