Yellow Objects

by Derek Chan

Inspired by events surrounding the ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, Yellow Objects weaves together lifetimes of inter-generational trauma, historical helplessness, and persistent defiance. This play is a collection of what was, what has been, what is, and what could be. This play is a rally for the ones who are still risking their lives out there. This play is written in remembrance of those who cannot be there anymore. This play is a lament of families broken and loves lost. This play is a warning for anyone who would listen, and for those who would not. Or, maybe, this play is just a feeble protest in face of inevitability. Whatever it is, I hope this play is not too late. Yesterday seems so long ago, and yet tomorrow is farther away still. GFHK, SDGM.
