Christopher Chen, Playwright

Commencement Speaker: Christopher Chen

Christopher Chen is a San Francisco–based playwright whose works examine the hidden psychological patterns beneath complex systems of power. Chen combines naturalism and the absurd within shifting kaleidoscopic structures. His plays include Caught (Play Company, InterAct Theatre), The Headlands (LCT3/Lincoln Center), Passage (Soho Rep., Wilma Theater), The Hundred Flowers Project (Crowded Fire Theater), and You Mean to Do Me Harm (SF Playhouse). Chen holds a BA from the University of California, Berkeley, and an MFA in playwriting from San Francisco State University.
