Over 250 plays documenting the Asian American experience as dramatized in works by writers from the 18th century to the present. Includes biographies, a performance database, production details, and associated visual resources, including photos, playbills, and manuscript images.
The plays have relevance well beyond the study of literature, drama, and Asian American studies. They present views of important historical events, such as the construction of the railroads in the nineteenth century, the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II, and the Vietnam conflict. The plays also address sociological issues, such as assimilation, integration, cultural identity in a Western context, and the effect of Western religion.
