Nancy Ma in MEMORIAL next week – & NuWorks 23 submissions open!

Introducing Nancy Ma, who will be playing Maya Lin from February 10th to 19th!

As a tribute to the Chinese-American architect Maya Lin, and with deep respect for her courage and creativity, Pan Asian Rep engaged two actresses to take on the titanic role of Maya. 
“…a nimbly drawn and elegantly executed new play…
Memorial does for Lin’s legacy what she has striven to do in her work — invite people to consider uncomfortable truths.”
— The New York Times
