Kenneth Lin returns to the Alley with his newest play, Warrior Class, as part of the Alley Theatre’s New Play Initiative, which facilitates the creative collaboration between playwrights, directors, actors, and designers during all stages of a new play’s development. In 2010, the Alley produced Lin’s world premiere of Intelligence-Slaveas part of its New Play Initiative. Warrior Classcenters on Julius Weishan Lee, a New York assemblyman who's been dubbed "The Republican Obama." Lee is the son of Chinese immigrants and a decorated war veteran with a seemingly limitless political career ahead of him. Then someone from his past threatens to reveal a college transgression, and Lee must decide how far he'll go to keep the incident out of the public eye. Whatever his decision, the consequences may be costly.
