Marin Theatre Company (Mill Valley, CA)
by Jihea Park
March 9 to April 2, 2017

Twin sisters "M" and "L" care about two things in this world: academic ambition, and each other. But when M's supposed shoo-in slot at a prestigious university is given to someone else, the sisters begin to strategize how to secure their success by any means necessary. Taking a page from a certain Scottish tragedy, the sisters' sinister scheming leads to bloody extracurricular activities that could take them to the top. Jiehae Park's new dark comedy is a savage satire on academia, teenagers and race, and made The Kilroys' 2015 List of the best new plays by female playwrights.

Fresh off a critically acclaimed World Premiere production at Yale Repertory in the 15-16 season, MTC is excited to bring this sinister twist on the Scottish Play to the West Coast under the direction of Margot Bordelon, who also directed the play's world premiere. Another of Park's plays, Hannah and the Dread Gazebo, won the Princess Grace Award, the Leah Ryan Prize, and landed on the first annual Kilroys List, and will receive its world premiere in March 2017 at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

Charles Francis Chan Jr.'s Exotic Oriental Murder Mystery
by Lloyd Suh
May 12 to May 28, 2017

1967: a new political identity called Asian American emerges and a young literary hippie named Frank essays an inscrutable Chinese detective. A harmless sing-song orientalist minstrel show that ENDS IN A GROTESQUE CARNIVAL OF MURDER!!!

At once both comedic and political, Lloyd Suh's play within a play delves into the history and politics of yellowface with a keen eye, dark humor, and a sharp wit. The New York Times calls the show "a metatheatrical polemic about the way Asian-Americans have been characterized and caricatured in popular culture." Charles Francis Chan Jr.'s Exotic Oriental Murder Mystery was featured in the 2016 New Eyes Festival at The Playwrights Center, and we are pleased to add Lloyd's show to our 25th Anniversary Season.

Join us at Guthrie Theater's Dowling Studio as we stage this exciting work as part of the Level Nine Initiative!

Based on the investigative reporting of CIR's Shoshana Walter, "Journey to Emeraldville" takes us deep into Humboldt County's secretive marijuana industry, where whispers of sexual abuse and trafficking haunt a culture established by free-spirited back-to-the-landers. 

Follow the "trimmigrant" labor force, young women who trim marijuana into buds, as they pursue their dreams – Terri, an environmentalist and musician; Carmen, undocumented and hoping to make enough to pay for her mother's medical bills; Monique, a Eureka teen, and other women who find themselves caught in the $2.7 billion industry's web of big business, greed and exploitation. As California legalizes pot, what will become of the women who toil in these fields of green?

This special reading will be followed by a Q&A session with the writer, director and reporter, as well as a short reception.
