Kristine & Jen in the Soho Rep Writer/Director Lab 2017-18


Kristine and Jen are psyched to working on their new collaboration plural (love) at the Soho Rep Writer/Director Lab for the next two years. Separate from the Lab, they are working with director Morgan Green on this same piece through the New Georges Jam. They hope for these two opportunities to generate much material that will intersect and integrate to become the play. 

on their play:

“plural (love) is a live performance that catalogues quandaries on ‘love’ shared in real-time. Drawing from auto-theory, daydreaming, critical theory/text, and song, we exercise radical truth-telling, which has become a major feminist project for both of us creatively and in life.”

Reading of Suicide Forest at Ars Nova

As part of the Makers Lab Residency at Ars Nova, we will be sharing a new play by Kristine Haruna Lee titled Suicide Forest Directed by Aya Ogawa, at Ars Nova May 4th at 3pm. The play will be read by an all Japanese/Japanese heritage cast. 

A despairing salaryman and a fed-up young school girl both decide to enter Japan's most notorious suicide spot, 'Aokigahara' or Suicide Forest, at the base of the national mountain. A nightmare play examining the sickness of a culturally uniform masculinity and the traditionally heroic performance of suicide. 

The Reading is free, but we ask that you make a reservation here

Help us launch Memory Retrograde!

We're gearing up for our showing of a new play titled MEMORY RETROGRADE on April 28 + 29 which closes our residency time at Brooklyn Arts Exchange. For the past 2 years, we've been creating this brand new piece from scratch and have been working towards this epic 3-part showing. We need your help to put this play up so we can invite folks into the room who can advocate for a full production in New York City in the very near future!
