The Republican Party finally —finally! — realizes it has a problem with race. So it decides its best chance for success in the 2016 presidential election is to back a candidate who's hapa — of mixed Asian descent. They think they've found their man in Nick, a promising Congressmember. But when Nick doesn't conform to their expectations of who he should be, they turn to Len, a multiracial war hero who can check off every single box — and maybe a couple more boxes no one knows about. A blisteringly funny satire that skewers not only the elephants in the room but the donkeys too, Mutt burns down the entire house of racial cards.

Christopher Chen, a playwright of immense talent on the rise, was the visionary behind the Glickman Award–winning cosmic explosion The Hundred Flowers Project at Crowded Fire last season. Mutt is a co-production between Impact and Ferocious Lotus, a new company devoted to promoting Asian-American theatre artists led by co-artistic directors Lily Tung Crystal and Leon Goertzen.

Featuring Patricia Austin, Michael Uy Kelly, Matthew Lai, Marilet Martinez, Lawrence Radecker, and Michelle Talgarow
