Welcome to our collection of short plays that explore the complex themes of immigration and migration, and the space. We were blown away by the over 170 submissions we received from playwrights all over the world and we selected seven plays through voting.
A Chinese grandmother imparts wisdom to her grandson while she practices qigong.
Could we teach history (of displacement) from the one whose only country they know does not accept them here? This is a play about identity, as it moves in time and space, thus carrying along the histories of places, people, languages, and traditional dishes.
What if the afterlife is a big, sterile, ever-changing and confusing international airport? At Chicago O'Hare, Meimei stumbles into a suprise encounter with her deceased grandmother. The two pause their search for home to enjoy, for a few fleeting moments, the both frustrating and profound home they have in each other.
A animal fable. The story of a mule between a herd of horses and donkeys.
Five Endlings--the last living animals of each of their respective species--meet for a picnic.
Ary and Chea revel in the mundane--dinner plans, recapping work, raising their child day to day--as they face deportation proceedings despite having spent their entire lives in America. A play about family, love, and a longing for a homeland which may never have existed.
A story tells a wanderer who guided by an unidentified child looks for a Buddha Hall in her dream.
