(Length: 1 hour, 30 mins)
TCG author and former staff member Young Jean Lee, Kristoffer Diaz, Tarrell Alvin McCraney (soon to be TCG author) and Tanya Saracho discuss their perspectives as members of a new generation of playwrights—all are under 30—who write about identity and politics and whose works make us aware of clichés, distortions, and absurdities in our current American culture. Director Jonathan Wilson moderates the discussion.
