Artists at Play is proud to announce that our 2014 fall production will be the Los Angeles premiere of 99 Histories by Julia Cho

Julia Cho, playwright

An award-winning writer, Julia Cho was born in Los Angeles and later moved with her family to Arizona. After studying English at Amherst College, she received master’s degrees from both UC Berkeley (in English Literature) and New York University (in Playwriting). She then went on to complete the playwriting program at The Juilliard School.

Ms. Cho’s plays include The Language Archive (2010 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize), The Piano Teacher, Durango, BFE, and The Architecture of Loss. Her work has been produced at theatres such as The Vineyard Theatre, The Public Theater, Playwrights Horizons, New York Theatre Workshop, East West Players, and Cincinnati Playhouse.


A finalist of the 2002 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, 99 Histories received its world premiere from Mu Performing Arts. With staged readings at New York Theatre Workshop, South Coast Repertory’s Pacific Playwrights Festival, Mark Taper Forum, and Sundance Institute Theatre Lab, the play was also workshopped by Cherry Lane Alternative. 

Artists at Play is thrilled to share Julia Cho’s writing, with veteran actor/director/educator Leslie Ishii directing our production. Join us this fall for the L.A. premiere of 99 Histories
