Set in the years 1969 to 1971 in the Yakiniku Dragon, a restaurant without plumbing in a Korean-Japanese ghetto, Yakiniku Dragon tells the story of a young boy who feels welcomed neither by the Japanese nor Korean societies. The play is based on Chong's own childhood experience, and is told through the six family members and guests who frequent the Yakiniku Dragon.
The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center presents World Voices: International Play Festival 2014 which will be presented on Monday April 28th- Wednesday April 30th. As part of the 2014 PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature, the Segal Center will showcase play readings by nine of the world's most respected dramatists.

The Japanese Government’s “Cool Japan” Hotline
“Cool Japan” refers to Japanese products, media and culture that non-Japanese people feel are interesting and distinct to Japan. The Japanese Government wishes to learn what is cool to non-Japanese and work on disseminating these things further in order to deepen cultural exchange. The Cabinet Secretariat welcomes your opinions on what things are ‘cool’ from the viewpoint of non-Japanese people but unnoticed by Japanese, proposals on how to disseminate “Cool Japan”, and any other proposals to the Japanese Government that may be helpful for the “Cool Japan” strategy. Please note that the Secretariat will not specifically reply to each opinion or proposal received. We appreciate your cooperation.
