What compels people to cross mountains and seas to another country, another continent, and another culture to find their true selves? What are the journeys we take to find home and belonging? In Yilong Liu’s play JUNE IS THE FIRST FALL, Don, a gay Chinese man, returns home to Hawaii to rediscover missing memories of himself and his family that he moved away from. His week-long stay opens wounds with his father and sister that never healed, aggravating Don’s struggle to find love and belonging in his life. JUNE IS THE FIRST FALL – the second-prize winner at the 2017 Paula Vogel Playwriting Award, bestowed by the Kennedy Center – looks at sexuality, family, and immigration through a contemporary Chinese lens, yet its themes cross multiple cultural boundaries.
