Happily Ever After: Two New Plays From Taiwan Explore Marriage Equality

About This Show

In May 2019, Taiwan became the first Asian country to legalize same-sex marriage. Join us with two contemporary Taiwanese plays exploring marriage equality.

The evening will feature excerpted staged readings from Solo Date by Pao-Chang Tsai and The Possible Memoirs of a Traitor by Li-Ying Chien, followed by a discussion with directors, playwright Pao-Chang Tsai, and IVP executive director Patrizia Acerra.

Blending new media, real-life events, and various performative techniques, Tsai’s and Chien’s highly political and engaged works give voice to an emerging cultural movement in Taiwan. As established queer artists, their creative processes and cultural productions also shed light on the struggles and achievements of the LGBTQ community in Taiwan and Asia today.
