WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Playwright Charles L. Mee's uproarious explosions of Aeschylus, Brecht, and Euripides collides texts from all ages and cultures to create hilarious, tangential, postmodern patchworks that live equally in the past and present. His latest play, Snow in June, is a wild tragicomedy based on a thirteenth-century Chinese tale about a young girl who returns to earth as a ghost to take revenge on the society that permitted her murder. The production will be staged by Chen Shi-Zheng, a young Chinese director whose stagecraft combines eastern and western theatrical traditions (here collaborating with set designer Yi Li Ming), and will feature live music from the Californian composer Paul Dresher.
