Call for Performance Reviews
Call for Performance Reviews by the David Henry Hwang Society
The David Henry Hwang Society was founded in 2016 at the Comparative Drama Conference with the goal of promoting scholarly examination of Hwang’s theatrical works. Since his first breakout play, FOB, in 1980, David Henry Hwang has proven the most significant and prolific Asian American playwright to date. From the global phenomenon of M. Butterfly and more recent successes with Yellow Face and Chinglish, Hwang has staged stories of the Asian American experience and explored questions of race, culture, and identity.
On the David Henry Hwang Society webpage, we will be publishing performance reviews of all Hwang related material (plays, musicals, operas, television episodes, etc.). This call applies not only to premieres, such as Dream of the Red Chamber which opens in San Francisco next month, but also revivals and regional productions of Hwang’s works.
Performance reviews should be 800-1200 words long. Please begin your review with the following format:
Eugene O’Neill Theatre
March 17, 1988 (Performance Date)
Director: John Dexter
Scenic Designer: Eiko Ishioka
Costume Designer: Eiko Ishioka
Performers: John Lithgow, B.D. Wong
Photographs are encouraged to accompany the review.
Please submit your reviews in Word format to email@example.com.
This is an open ended call.
