“Funny, poignant, absurd and thought-provoking . . . this brilliant ensemble brings the stories to life with staggering talent and dedication . . . wonderfully entertaining ride through genetic coding, self-examination and human interaction.”—Venus Zarris, Chicago Stage Review
Chicago’s Silk Road Theatre Project will present a concert reading of The DNA Trail: A Genealogy of Short Plays about Ancestry, Identity and Utter Confusion. Theatre meets science when a diverse group of playwrights each agree to take a genealogical DNA test and revisit their assumptions about identity politics and the perennial question, “Who am I?” Self, family, community and ethnicity are all up for grabs.
The DNA Trail is composed of seven unique, identity-defying short plays conceived by Jamil Khoury and directed by Steve Scott. Featured plays include the following:
* Child Is Father to Man by Philip Kan Gotanda
* Mother Road by Velina Hasu Houston
* A Very DNA Reunion by David Henry Hwang
* WASP: White Arab Slovak Pole by Jamil Khoury
* Bolt from the Blue by Shishir Kurup
* That Could Be You by Lina Patel
* Finding Your Inner Zulu by Elizabeth Wong
The concert reading will be followed by a discussion with the playwrights, actors and directors.
