Asian American Authors Pepper Steppenwolf’s The Mix

Steppenwolf's The MixThe Mix is a new play resource highlighting plays that feature casts of intersectional and intersecting social identities.

The following list is comprised of new and underproduced plays that professionals in the field recommend and describe as featuring a mix of diverse central characters who resist simple categorization and lead richly textured lives as they navigate a complex world. Character identities have been defined broadly to be inclusive of (but not limited to) race, ethnicity, gender, varied physical or cognitive ability, size, sexual orientation, and generation. The goal of this project is to assist in the collective effort to move towards a holistic, nuanced, and equitable approach to diversity in the theatre.

96 nominators (listed on the right below), including playwrights, directors, theatre administrators, and other professionals, recommended up to three plays that they believe fulfill this mission. The result is The Mix, a list of 208 plays by 167 writers. Each playwright included in The Mix has approved their participation in this project and all of the recommended works are included here.
