“I cannot recommend this play enough. This show is a singular story written in a way that underlines a universal truth. Howard Ho tells a tale that sheds light on racial issues that permeate our entire culture.” (Adam Lim) The Second Annual BFF Binge Free Festival of Theatre presents one night only of playwright and composer Howard Ho’s Various Emporia, a 2017 O’Neill National Playwrights Finalist.
