A New Play By Steve “Spike” Wong
Premieres August 2022
at Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts – SecondStage
After his WWII service as a bombardier, a young Chinese American man must come to terms with tragedy on his last mission before he can fully return home. His Chinese family obligations clash with his search for a path to his future, but the way forward depends on a secret.
Inspired by the playwright’s father, Captain Ernest Wong of the US Army Air Force in World War II, this is the story of his return home to a small town in California in 1944. With its focus on Chinese American culture, immigration, and military service during wartime, the play is a unique blend of drama and comedy.
This performance is 2 hours and 15 minutes long with one 15 minute intermission.
