Playwright Lucy Wang is starting her tenure on January 16, 2012 and will be working out of the second floor Resident's Office in the Marion Davies Guest House through March 26, 2012. She will be adapting her young adult novel Teen Mogul into a play, completing a second draft of her play-in-progress, Moo Goo Gai Pan Asian, and developing a ten-minute piece to perform in New York this fall.

Lucy's public events will focus on working with the public to unearth and exchange stories, especially stories around cultural and social traditions, as well as narratives about the Beach House and its history. On most Mondays and Saturdays throughout her term, she will be available to field questions from the public about playwriting, the residency, and the writing life from 11am-1pm from her office on the second floor of the Marion Davies Guest House. A full schedule, subject to change is appended below.

Her first public event, a Story Circle with Lucy Wang; New Year, New Beginnings, will take place from 2-4pm on Monday, January 16th. Save the dates of February 18th and March 19th for another participatory event and a final reading.

Open office hours - come by to say hello! Mondays 1/16, 1/23, 1/30, 2/6, 2/13, 2/20, 2/27, 3/5, 3/12, 3/19, 3/26 and Saturdays 2/18, 2/25, 3/3, 3/10, 3/17, 3/24.
