AFTER THE WAR

by Philip Kan Gotanda

A.C.T. 2007


"Playwright Philip Gotanda and director Carey Perloff never lose sight of the fact that this play is about race — about prejudice, injustice, stereotypes, grudges and just plain ignorance. In other words, it's about America."

–– EAST BAY TIMES


“'Philip’s quiet demeanor belies a huge passion for the world, for social justice and for unheard voices, for love and storytelling,' says Carey Perloff, artistic director of San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theater. 'Working with Philip has been one of the highlights of my time at ACT. His writing is so spare, so specific, so alive and so muscular. I adore the way he can fill in an entire world with very few strokes and give dignity and depth to his characters in such surprising ways.'

'Philip has always been an amazing mentor — he looks for younger artists to support and nurture and knows how to guide writers toward richer work,'  says Perloff. 'He has already made a huge impact there by exploring his own new work with undergraduates and by encouraging different departments and different kinds of artists to collaborate.'”
