Background on Roberta Uno

Coconut Masquerade postcard

Coconut Masquerade postcard

Born in Hawaii and raised in Los Angeles, Roberta Uno intended to study medicine when she enrolled at Hampshire in the mid-1970s, but grew increasingly interested in the theater. After graduation in 1977, she took a year off to explore playwriting before applying to medical school; however, that year turned into a career.

Hired by the Office of Student Activities, Uno developed the idea of establishing a truly multicultural theatrical company, which launched in 1979 AS The Third World Theater Series, developed into the New World Theater, a theater in residence dedicated to the production of works by playwrights of color. Serving for 23 years as the Theater's artistic director and as professor of theatre at the University, Uno directed and helped produce dozens of plays by both new and established playwrights, many from outside the mainstream of university-affiliated theatrical companies. During her time at UMass, she also earned an MFA in 1994 for Directing and a thesis on Diana Saenz, "A dream of canaries: the staging of a new work."

She is a member of the Society of Stage Directors and Choreographers. Since leaving UMass, Uno is the Senior Program Officer for Arts and Culture at the Ford Foundation in New York City. Among other works, she is author of The Color of Theater: Race, Culture, and Contemporary Performance (London, 2002), and editor of Unbroken Thread: An Anthology of Plays by Asian American Women (Amherst, Mass., 1993) and Contemporary Plays by Women of Color: An Anthology (London, 1996).

This play was used to test a thesis: Can a story be told out of sequence, and if so, is it the same story? The thesis production was done in three shows: The Naive Show, where the text is performed in the order it was written; The Decadent Show, with audience/ user interference in selection of the sequence of scenes complete with a mouse emcee; and the Sophisticated Show which starts out with user participation until the system crashes (all in the dark) to start again from the top of the show and play out as intended (decadence back into naivete).

Trixi is stripped of her facades after her night at Crown Goose.

Daisy Lee, a former porn star, is being cut up by Dr. Harvey, a man who has promised a cure for her.

Tuan, Alice, Ikebana: typescript

Tuan, Alice, Ikebana
1996

Includes a playbill, artist's notes on the play, and publicity materials. Summary: Ikebana is the story of a three-generation Chinese-American family and their secrets. Grandma Rose's favorite daughter, Ester, is dying of cancer but the secret is kept from Rose by her family in order to protect her from heartbreak.Her less-favored daughter, Lily, has found religion through the voice of Mahalia Jackson. Rose's grandson Ellison is possibly gay and her granddaughter Violet is dating a black ikebanist named Bo. Violet's sister Iris, is the playwright who is revealing her family through this play, all the while pondering the mysterious disappearance of her father Luther (a secret that is perhaps being kept from them all by Rose's son Woodman).The play is written in a fragmeted post-modern style, the construction of each scene based on a japanese flower arrangement. The metaphor of 'arrangement' links to the arrangement of reality required to keep a secret, the ikebanist's arrangement of flowers to evoke an emotion, God's arrangement of people into their fates, and the playwright's arrangement of characters within her world. The blur of reality and play factors into the shifting core of a bicultural protagonist.

Tuan, Alice, Kitpor: 25 short plays of Go, Fa, Em and Da
1994

Da has long ago fled the family and has genetically shifted--she appears black to us. Em has also invited her writer friend, Go, an ethnic man who passes for white. Go is visiting to perhaps spark up a romance with Em--he's also a gay man who passes for straight--as if a change in lifestyle would lessen the danger of disease. As they trip, Go hallucinates the presence of Rick Springfield, Da of her 100-year old grandmother Yu. Go realizes he cannot participate in Em's gridlock of a life, they leave back to Los Angeles as Da and Fa find camaraderie.

Tuan, Alice, Last of the Suns (formerly General Yeh Yeh)
1993

Two versions in archive. Summary: General Sun, a once-powerful commander in the Chinese Nationalist army, turns 100 years old in the San Fernando Valley, where family and culture is breaking down. He lives with his son Ho Ping and family. Known as Yeh Yeh (paternal grandfather) he longs to escape the modern world which can no longer absorb him: his grandson Sonny is the quintessential Valley Dude, his daughter-in-law Ni Lee has frozen from the failure of her ice-skating daughter, his own son Ho Ping treats him as a child. His granddaughter, Twila, returns home after a five year absence and triggers a thaw in the Sun family. Monkey King and Eight Pig, two mythic characters from Chinese folk tales, as well as Buddha and May Lee, his "death muse", try to woo Yeh Yeh to the other side while his grandchildren try to recover from being casualities of Asian overachievement and growing up different in suburbia.

Tuan, Alice, maLL
1997

Summary: Christina, a middle-aged, barren shopper, and Bat, an ex-con mall rat course through the Durock Mall during an endless Christmas season. This particular mall is populated with characters based on a Religious Studies course (the Darker Concept of Self: East and West) taught by Prof. Mark Unno at Brown University. If each 'store' could represent a different century or philosophical thought, then shopping would consist more of finding a spiritual belief than of pure product consumption. Some of the prototypes for the mallfolk include Shinran, Kant, Hsun Tze, Beavis & Butthead, Kierkegaard, Dogen, Simone Weil, Chuang Tse and Albert Camus. Each ensemble member has a map of existence, at one moment playing a character, at another moment an object in a window. The mall here is the cultural cathedral of our time, at one moment a game show at another a fashion show, later a beauty pageant; it is the seminal hypertext metaphor, as our narrative through the mall is never the same.
