‘Porcelain’: A Free Staged Reading
by Chay Yew
Directed by Ely Sonny Orquiza
Written by acclaimed Singaporean-born playwright and director Chay Yew (‘A Language of their Own’, ‘Wonderland’), ‘Porcelain’ is an examination of a young man’s crime of passion. Triply scorned — as an Asian, a homosexual, and now a murderer — 19-year-old John Lee has confessed to shooting his lover in a public lavatory in London. The play dissects the crime through a prism of conflicting voices: newscasts, flashbacks, and John’s own recollections to a prison psychiatrist.
Performed by Mikee Loria, Walter Zarnowitz, Faustino Cadiz, Alec Braun, and Max Seijas.
