Playwright David Henry Hwang recently visited the Fall 2016 NYU SPS class “Plays With a Social Conscience” to discuss his
outstanding, provocative play M BUTTERFLY. In addition to his acclaimed career as a playwright, David also finds the time to write for the Showtime television series The Affair. In a recent blog post David shares how a real life ordeal inspired a major plot point in season three of The Affair. (Caution: David’s blog post contains spoilers for The Affair! Only read it if you’ve already watched season 3, episode 1.)
David is generous enough to visit “Plays With a Social Conscience” every semester that his schedule allows. In the spring, Plays With a Social Conscience instructor Bob Lamm will be teaching Novels with a Social Conscience.
