David Henry Hwang in Conversation

True Heart Theatre - in collaboration with the Asian Performing Arts Forum and RHUL - present


Telling Tales, May 25 2013, 4.30 – 6.30 pm

Chinese Community Centre, 2 Leicester Court, London WC2H 7DW (off Cranbourn Street, Leicester Square)


A conversation with David Henry Hwang


Also featuring a 30-minute showcase of a devised performance in Cantonese & English based on Agnes Allcock’s Behind the Curtain (with English surtitles)


Eminent American playwright David Henry Hwang, best known for the West End success of M Butterfly in the late 80s, has written many award-winning plays for Broadway since then – most recently Chinglish, and Yellowface. With Arts Council England support, True Heart is producing the most autobiographical of his plays Golden Child at the New Diorama Theatre 2 – 12 October for its London premiere. True Heart will chat to David Henry Hwang about his illustrious and inspiring career in playwriting and then open up the floor for a Q & A with the artist.


Behind the Curtain was inspired by the infamous MacLennan Affair in colonial Hong Kong during the 1980s. A young police officer is found dead, with five bullets to his chest and a suicide note: things do not add up. This is a play-in-development about the power of public opinion, the accountability of government, and the battle for one's human right to love freely. Directed & performed by Larry Ng, with Valentina Wong & Andy Yau
