    • Mountain View Center for Performing Arts, Second Stage, 500 Castro St, Mountain View, CA 94041

    White Sky, Falling Dragon is a new play by Steve "Spike" Lee, premiering at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts (MVCPA).

    After his WWII service as a bombardier, a young Chinese American man must come to terms with tragedy on his last mission before he can fully return home. His Chinese family obligations clash with his search for a path to his future, but the way forward depends on a secret. Inspired by the playwright’s father, Captain Ernest Wong of the US Army Air Force in World War II, this is the story of his return home to small town Watsonville, California in 1944. With its focus on Chinese American culture, immigration, and military service during wartime, the play is a unique blend of drama and comedy.
