In Dogeaters Jessica Hagedorn has transformed her own best-selling novel into an equally powerful piece that is a multi-layered, operatic tour de force. As Harold Bloom writes: 'Hagedorn expresses the conflicts experienced by Asian immigrants caught between two cultures...She takes aim at racism in the US and develops in her dramas the themes of displacement and the search for belonging.' ('Dogeater', by the way, is a derogatory American term for Philippino.)

"A dangerous play which actually achieves its great ambitions... it focuses our attention on a land not well understood... What kind of price does the average person pay while living under a dictatorship? What does naked power look like?... Dogeaters is a play of important answers" Jose Rivera; "A stunning play of epic proportions" Chay Yew; "In Dogeaters the journey is as titillating as a great vacation that leads you willingly into danger. The play carves a clear narrative line out of a dense literary pastiche - a real accomplishment" New York Times"
