by Cherylene Lee
Merging science, art and politics, Lees play is inspired by the Census 2000
report detailing growing populations of people with mixed heritage in
California. Wai Lin-Lawson, a young anthropologist and Jake Ramírez, a
Native American activist, struggle over ownership of a 9,000-year old
human skull from the La Brea Tar Pits. As they uncover the skulls past, Wai
and Jake are forced to confront their own identities as people of mixed
race. Emotions spark, pitting culture against science and heritage against
ethnicity. Directed by Glen Coffman.
