The Chinese Barber & His Wife

The Chinese Barber And His Wife deals with two people who enter, separately, into a place where their language is not spoken, and so use it as an opportunity to vent their secret fears, prejudices, and longings. The play was written while attending the Words That Speak Playwriting Workshop in Los Angeles, CA. It is, as of yet, unproduced.
