A satirical piece by the scathingly funny, award-winning Young Jean Lee, Songs of the Dragons Flying to Heaven takes the audience on a shockingly direct and unflinching dissection of race. Obliterating conventions of Asian stereotypes through its violent and explosive theatricality, Songs follows four Korean women on a wild journey—sometimes hilarious, other times squirm-inducing.

"Songs of the Dragons Flying to Heaven is the strongest indication that the avant-garde isn't dead, and has never been funnier."
--New York Magazine

"Young Jean Lee is one of the best experimental playwrights in America."
--Time Out New York
