About this Event

Eugenie Chan Theater Projects and the Chinese Historical Society of America invite you to a reading of Chan Family Picnic, a rollicking new vaudeville about the mental health impact of America's legacy of anti-Asian legislation and sex trafficking on three generations of the playwright's Chinese American family. Chan layers original material with actual family documents to explore the world Chan's Grandfather and great-uncle knew-and made-one of high hopes and hard choices.

Annie Elias, director

Jonathan Erman, music director

With Nicole Apostol Bruno, Will Dao, Rob Dario, Keiko Shimosato Carreiro, Benjamin Pither, Shauna Satnick, Erin Mei-Ling Stuart, Ogie Zulueta, musicians Alan Yip and Jonathan Erman. Stage managed by Eteya Trinidad.
