About This Show

As the sixth and final production of its 2004/2005 Season, Playwrights Horizons presents the New York Premiere of BFE, a new play by Julia Cho, directed by Gordon Edelstein. The production is presented in association with Long Wharf Theatre.

An Asian-American family attempts to escape its stifling home life in B.F.E., which tells the story of Panny, a spunky fourteen year-old; her socially awkward uncle; her homebound mom who fantasizes about General MacArthur; and the serial killer that stalks their neighborhood in search of bubbly blondes. A cautionary tale about the sometimes-devastating effects of an image-obsessed society, B.F.E. calls into question the nature of beauty and desirability in contemporary America.
