TheatreWorks, the nationally acclaimed theatre of Silicon Valley, presents the California Premiere of the incisive political drama WARRIOR CLASS by Kenneth Lin (Netflix’s House of Cards, Fallow, Po Boy Tango). Dubbed “The Republican Obama,” Julius Lee is a son of Chinese immigrants, decorated war veteran, and charismatic speaker on the cusp of his political career. But when secrets from his past are unearthed and scandal looms, he discovers the dangerous intersection of politics and idealism. Winner of the Edgerton Foundation New American Play Award, WARRIOR CLASS offers insight into the cutthroat world of hardball politics with a taut, topical saga of backroom engineering. TheatreWorks Associate Artistic Director Leslie Martinson will direct this absorbing new play, which received its Off-Broadway debut at Second Stage Theatre Uptown last year.
