SIS Productions, an Asian American women-run theatre company, invited a number of women to adapt traditional Asian tales or imagine their own new ones. With complete freedom to create whatever they wanted, all the playwrights ended up writing scripts that all had a feminist flair, that included humor and poignancy, and overwhelmingly featured multi-generations of women. Single moms, strong grandmothers, sibling rivalry, inter-generational bonding, and female solidarity are featured themes. But the most powerful revelation through all of them are female characters finding and choosing their own paths in life. This collection of six new 10-minute plays, all written by women and directed by Asian American women, are a fabulous opportunity for parents to share with their kids, and women along with their male allies, to enjoy more authentic representations of women.”
