Join us for dinner and a viewing of Golden Shield, a riveting new play about loyalties, intrigue, and the delicate art of translation. When enterprising American lawyer Julie Chen files a class-action lawsuit involving a multinational technology corporation and the Chinese government, she hires her strong-minded sister Eva as her translator. But what compromises will they make in order to win? And can they put aside their differences to speak the same language?

This fast-paced production is directed by May Adrales, director of Fordham’s Theatre Program. She helmed the world premiere of the Lortel Award- and Obie Award-winning production Vietgone at Manhattan Theatre Club. She has been awarded directing fellowships at New York Theater Workshop, Women’s Project, SoHo Rep, and the Drama League.

Before heading to the show together, we’ll gather for dinner at Serafina Broadway, located at 210 West 55th Street in Manhattan. This is a great opportunity to meet some of your fellow alumni! During dinner, we’ll hear from May Adrales.

Tickets are $150 per person and include both dinner and the show.

A reminder email with additional information will be sent to you one week prior to the event.
