Christiana premieres two new plays in the World’s Fair Play Festival


Christiana Cole premieres new plays by Wendy MacLeod and Lauren Yee as part of the World’s Fair Play Festival, at the Queens Theatre, July 18-27. The WFPL is a presentation of ten original ten-minute plays inspired by the 1939 and 1964 World’s Fairs.

The WFPF celebrates the rich, vibrant history that continues to animate Flushing Meadows Corona Park, the borough of Queens, and more broadly – New York City. The multiplicity of cultures and ideologies that were on display at the World’s Fairs and that populate Queens today will play an integral part in the WFPF.

Christiana is featured in “Drop a Dime” by Wendy MacLeod (The House of Yes, and premieres at the Goodman Theater and Playwrights Horizons) and “Carousel of Progress” by Lauren Yee (Ching Chong Chinaman, Pan Asian Rep: The Hatmaker’s Wife, Playwrights Realm). Lauren Keating and Erik Pearson direct, respectively.
