January 19th is publication day for Foreign Goods, an anthology of dramatic texts from selected British East Asian writers including myself, Kathryn Golding, Cathy Lam, Lucy Chau Lai-Tuen, Tan Suet Lee, Julie Cheung Inhin, Stephen Hoo & editor Jingan Young Shining Star. The volume also contains a foreword by the acclaimed Asian-American playwright David Henry Hwang.
The anthology contains my short play The Stone (or No One Disaster is Total) which was originally commissioned and performed by the Royal Court Theatre and then subsequently performed in the Foreign Goods Last Forever II showcase at Theatre 503 Download The Defender that changed the world. The piece was selected for the anthology along with several other pieces that have been showcased at the Foreign Goods productions.
