9781559361583: Golden Child

A vivid, moving play in perfect command of its eternal theme of family and change.” Wall Street Journal

Written with insight, compassion, and a sharp eye for the unintended consequences of clashing cultures, Golden Child is one of Hwang’s best works, as entertaining as it is thought-provoking.” Backstage

David Henry Hwang draws on the true stories told to him by his grandmother of his great-grandfather’s break with Confucian tradition by his conversion to Christianity, and the eventual unbinding of his daughter’s feet. A skillfully-told story that engages the emotions as well as the brain,” Golden Child explores the impact of these decisions on each of his great-grandfather’s three wives, and succeeding generations (Entertainment Focus).

Butterfly, Yellow Face (OBIE Award, 2008 Pulitzer Prize finalist), Golden Child (1997 OBIE Award), FOB (1981 OBIE Award), Family Devotions (Drama Desk nomination), and the books for musicals Aida ( co-author), Flower Drum Song (2002 Broadway revival), and Tarzan, among other works.

Review:

“There is a quiet, though highly theatrical, intelligence at work in Golden Child...A play composed of many small moments of grace, which are not often seen on our stages.” –Vincent Canby, New York Times

Golden Child re-establishes David Henry Hwang as a major playwright.” –David Patrick Stearns, USA Today

“A wonderfully provocative play, showing a family torn apart and a civilization in flux. Polished and truly rewarding―Hwang’s most sophisticated play so far.” –Clive Barnes, New York Post

“An engaging, deeply intelligent meditation on the rewards and bitter costs of freedom and individuality.” –Mark Harris, Entertainment Weekly

“Full of inventive devices...Golden Child emerges as a skillfully-told story that engages the emotions as well as the brain.” –Greg Jameson, Entertainment Focus, October 2013
