A special ONE NIGHT ONLY Benefit Performance to Commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre in China.

letters_to_a_student_revolutionary_postcard-small.jpgLETTERS TO A STUDENT REVOLUTIONARY traces the decade-long correspondence and friendship between two pen-pals -- one Chinese, the other Chinese American -- which ended abruptly with the 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, the play explores ideas of capitalism and communism, and ultimately becomes a call to remember the price of democracy.
