Chisa Hutchinson's new drama Somebody's Daughter will receive its world premiere in summer 2017 in a production of Second Stage Theatre's Second Stage Uptown series. The work will be seen at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre, with official dates and casting to be announced at a later date.

The play is described as follows: "Alex is a fifteen-year-old Asian-American girl going to extremes to get her own mother to notice her. She's a dream child, except to her parents who wish she was a boy. Luckily she finds a sympathetic ear in Kate, her irreverent guidance counselor who knows all too well what it's like to walk in Alex's shoes. As three generations of women find their identity in question, each needs to decide who makes the rules and what happens when you break them."

Hutchinson is Second Stage's Tow Foundation playwright in residence. Somebody's Daughter recently made the 2016 Kilroy List, designated as one of 32 distinguished new plays by female and trans playwrights.
