Grace Chan and Christina Cordano

CHAN_GRACE_2A proud Malaysian “third culture kid,” Grace Chan (pictured right) is a senior in Gallatin concentrating in theatre, education, identity, and food, with a minor in global education. Her recent performances include: Gallatin’s Antigone and The Immersive Project’s Life Is But A Dream. In her art, Grace strives to play seriously. In her life, Grace strives to be the woman of Proverbs 31:25, clothed in strength and dignity, with a laugh for the days to come.

Christina Cordano (pictured left) is a senior from Los Angeles in Tisch studying Dramatic Writing, and minoring in Creative Writing and Producing. She recently premiered her new play, Start-Up Virgins, at Broke People Play Festival. In her storytelling, Christina enjoys creating daring, yet hard-headed women. Christina is charmed by her grandmother’s jewelry, glittering movie palaces, and the occasional cat or dog she encounters.    

Left in the Dark
In “Left in the Dark,” Christina and Grace play with dark humor to shed light on the discussions we have about and with women. In the light, you see a group of girls at a sleepover; but when we turn the lights off, what do you have? Just their personalities, their voices, and their alibis. “Left In The Dark” is Christina and Grace’s third murder mystery but the first to be performed outside of a residence hall. Two years ago, they created the tradition of the annual “U-Halloween Murder Mystery” in their jobs together as Resident Assistants. But now, “Left in the Dark” plays with this familiar genre to bring the funny, the heartbreaking, the cruel, and the beautiful parts of being a woman onto the stage for a wildly good time in the theater.
