A young girl—a child born from the union between a Vietnamese woman and an American GI—searches high and low for her father. So begins the story of Lanford Wilson’s Redwood Curtain.

Wilson is a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, and Redwood Curtain is a shining example of sharp wit, taking a scalpel to the harsh realities of life in America for our veterans.

Opens Thursday, January 16 through March 15, 8pm. $27-42. The Purple Rose Theatre, 137 Park St. Chelsea. 734-433-7673. purplerosetheatre.org
