New Ground Theatre Festival

Roe Green, Honorary Producer bio

New Ground Theatre Festival is an annual showcase of new theatrical works. Cleveland Play House develops and presents a variety of new work from nationally recognized artists, and each year produces a centerpiece production. Other offerings range from fully produced large-scale collaborations with peer top-tier organizations to solo performances to readings of plays hot off the writer's printer. The Roe Green Award brings a leading American playwright to Cleveland to develop a new project culminating in a free conversation with the playwright and public reading of the script.

The Chinese Lady

The Chinese Lady

May 20, 2017

In 1834, Afong Moy is brought to the United States from Beijing and put on display as the “Chinese Lady” for the American public. Over the next 55 years, she performs an ethnicity that both defines and challenges her own view of herself, as she witnesses stunning transformations in the American identity. Inspired by the true story of America’s first female Chinese immigrant, playwright Lloyd Suh unearths hidden history and spins a tale of dark poetic whimsy.

Nolan Williams Project

Nolan Williams Project

May 20, 2017

To make his next big deal, an up-and-coming Philadelphia real estate developer needs to acquire—and level—a beloved family-owned soul food establishment. But as he’s taken through the restaurant’s incredible 100-year history, the present becomes entwined with the past, and the tale emerges of the escaped southern migrants who risked everything to build and celebrate their new life up north through cooking. With a live band on stage, cast members will perform select songs from this dynamic new score composed by American songwriter Nolan Williams, Jr., an emerging new voice in musical theatre.
