Lydia's Funeral Video

By Sam Chanse. Illustrations by Matt Huynh.

Native New Yorker <b>Samantha Chanse</b> is a multidisciplinary artist: writer-performer, playwright, comic, and musician. Based in New York and San Francisco, she is also an educator and arts organizer who has worked with a number of not-for-profit arts organizations as artistic director and program director. Her theater work has been presented with the New York International Fringe Festival, Kearny Street Workshop, The Marsh, Asian American Theater Company (AATC), Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Bowery Poetry Club, and others. She is the recipient of an Individual Artist Commission from the San Francisco Arts Commission and an Artist In Motion residency from Footloose/Shotwell Studio, and an Emerging Artists Residency from Tofte Lake Center.Lydia's Funeral Video is a one-woman play written and performed by Sam Chanse, a playwright and performer based in New York and California. In this apocalyptic satire, devout bank clerk Lydia Clark-Lin has 28 days to terminate an unplanned pregnancy, shoot her own funeral video and do some standup comedy. As the camera rolls and Lydia gamely sets about her grim task, a story emerges that is at once hilarious and unnerving. This publication unites the full theater script of Lydia's Funeral Video with a new counterpoint narrative and stream-of-consciousness illustrations that enhance this dynamic realization of a live theater experience in book form. Also included are notes and an essay about the origins and development of the piece, as well as a special mini-flipbook. Seamlessly weaving in questions of race, gender identity and more existential questions, Lydia's Funeral Video is bold, unpredictable storytelling at its inventive and unsettling best.

FROM THE BOOK
“Spiked with surreal celebrity trash-culture references, sardonic moral relativity, and Chanse’s biting wit, Lydia’s Funeral Video celebrates irreverent political incorrectness and the societal gray areas in all of us.” — Flavorpill
