Young Jean Lee, Kristoffer Diaz, Tarrell Alvin McCraney and Tanya Saracho discuss their perspectives as members of a new generation of playrights - all are under 30 - who write about identity and politics and whose works make us aware of clichés, distortions, and absurdities in our current America. Director Jonathan Wilson moderates the discussion.
