Born and raised in Toronto, Chloé Hung recently completed her MFA in dramatic writing at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where she studied playwriting, screenwriting, and TV writing. Her play, All Our Yesterdays, debuted at the 2015 Toronto Fringe Festival to rave reviews, accolades and awards from NOW Magazine, MyEntertainmentWorld’s MyTheatre Award, and the festival’s Patron’s Pick. It was restaged at the curated 2016 Next Stage Theatre Festival. The Globe and Mail called Chloé “a writer to watch.” All Our Yesterdays raised money for Save the Children and Plan Canada’s Because I Am A Girl campaign. Her play, Issei, He Say (or the Myth of the First) was workshopped with Oskar Eustis and Suzan-Lori Parks and will be workshopped at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. July 2016. As a screenwriter, she was a finalist two consecutive years at the Fusion Film Festival for Untapped and A Glimpse of Sun, the latter was selected for the Black List’s LA mini-lab. Chloé is thrilled to work on Three Women of Swatow with Tarragon’s Playwrights Unit.
