LETTERS FROM HOME
Written and performed by Kalean Ung
Music by Chinary Ung
Directed by Marina McClure

November 10 - 18, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm
$25 General Admission, $35 generous admission

In 2016, Kalean Ung learned of a drawer in her father’s study, filled with letters from family and friends living in desperate circumstances in refugee camps and detailing their lives during the genocide that befell Cambodia with the rise of the Khmer Rouge. Letters from Home examines her own life through the stories her father (acclaimed composer Chinary Ung) told her of arriving in America in the 1960s as a young music student and his subsequent quest to rescue family members. Through song, storytelling, and the text of the letters, she navigates the boundary between her family’s history and her own experience as a bi-racial, first generation American. First presented as a reading at our iambic lab series, this extraordinary collaboration between father and daughter takes the next step in its development in the ISC Studio before embarking on tour.

Written and performed by Kalean Ung. Composer: Chinary Ung. Director: Marin McClure. Video Projections: Hsuan-Kuang Hsieh. Costumes: Amanda Wing Yee Lee. Sound Design: Chris Porter. Stage Manager: Jenny Jihee Park.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL WITH CHARLES DICKENS
December 7 - 23, Thursday - Saturday at 7:30, Sundays at 2:00
$25 General Admission, $35 generous admission

In his lifetime, Charles Dickens was recognized not only as a great writer, but as an actor. His greatest successes on the stages of Britain and the United States were his solo performances of his own work. Join us this holiday season as we re-create (with more than a little artistic license) the experience of a public reading given by Mr. Dickens himself. Based on the novelist’s own adaptation, it's an evening full of wry humor, music, and the acting pyrotechnics Dickens was famous for. With David Melville as Charles Dickens.
