Young Jean Lee’s Theater Company (YJLTC) is an experimental theater company that has been developing and producing shows written and directed by Young Jean Lee since 2003.  


In his citation for the 2010 American Academy of Arts and Letters Literature Awards, Academy member Romulus Linney wrote:


“Young Jean Lee’s plays are fierce, challenging, brazenly theatrical, and then transcendentally lyrical. Her wit is both biting and hilarious. Her subjects big, bold, and daring, but truthful and humane. In seven years, as author and director, she has created a theater like none other, and with it, a fresh dramatic language for the multi-cultural American stage.”
