What happens when the barriers holding you back from your dreams are also the people closest to you? Hell is a Bubble Tea Shop is a play that explores how we construct identity in the midst of obstacles and expectations… that happen to take the form of a Chinese-American family. We follow the journey of a freshly deceased young woman who tries to use her new perspective on life to make sense of familial expectations and pain.

Everyday racism can come on slyly—a hasty glance or too-casual comment. Sometimes from a friend. Or a coworker. Other pointed or veiled aggressions play out in the classroom, on the street, on the national stage, in the media, at home—all the time. The cost of micro and macro aggression thrown against a white wall of racism is played out individually as Black Americans, and cannot be ignored. Adapted from Claudia Rankine’s acclaimed book of poetry, this searingly provocative meditation on race in America is not a play. It’s fast-moving, fluid theater at the speed of thought. “Moving, stunning, and formally innovative-in short, a masterwork.” ― Salon
