Paper Dreams of Harry Chin (CANCELED)

Despite the US ban against Chinese immigrants, Harry Chin forged a new identity to earn precious American dollars to send home to his starving village. Now he is trapped between two families and two worlds. Seasoned with magic and mystery, this hauntingly theatrical tale from our overlooked history considers the personal and political repercussions of making a group of people illegal.

APPROXIMATE RUN TIME: 2 hours and 15 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission

The Paper Dreams of Harry Chin is a family drama that contains profanity and references to suicide. Recommended for patrons 9th grade and above. Due to content and length, children under 4 years of age are not permitted in the OneAmerica Mainstage and Upperstage Theatres.



With much consideration for the State of Indiana and City of Indianapolis’ COVID-19 guidelines and the health and well-being of our patrons, staff, and artists, Indiana Repertory Theatre has made the extremely difficult decision to close to the public for the rest of the 19-20 Season.
