David Henry Hwang's latest work, Soft Power, which is, as he describes it, a play with a musical, had its world premiere in Los Angeles in May of this year. Undoubtedly, Soft Power, which tells of a love story between a Chinese movie producer and Hillary Clinton, is Hwang's most overt piece of political theatre, written in response to the election of Donald Trump to President. The David Henry Hwang Society invites asbtract proposals that examine Hwang and his plays in relation to his and their engagement with politics. In other words, just how political is Hwang as a playwright?
In addition, the David Henry Hwang society invites any proposals that cover Hwang and his works in general.
