Victory Gardens has announced its 2009-10 season.
I’d do like I usually do, talking about the relative diversity of the season, the representation of writers of color, of women, of new voices, and all that is important and all, but I’m a little distracted by this paragraph:
The new season kicks off in the fall with “Year Zero,” a play about a 16-year-old Cambodian-American, penned by Michael Golamco. That studio production will play simultaneously with “The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity, ” a mainstage play about a professional wrestler penned by Kristoffer Diaz and directed by Eddie Torres.
We’ll be talking about this more later. A lot.
(EDIT: here’s the actual press release, as reprinted by Newcity Stage.)
