Jennifer Chang

Director/ Writer/ Actor


Stories cannot be bound by borders or pandemics - they are necessary to soothe spirits, teach lessons, and carry us forward in our humanity.  

I am passionate about exploring the fault lines of opinions and creating bridges for conversation.  I believe in challenging binary paradigms and embracing diversity of thought, feeling, and identity.  
I am committed to anti-racist practices and am deeply curious about Who or What is an American?  
My aspirations and responsibilities do not exist in my AAPI community and identity alone. E Pluribus Unum - out of many, one – as an American, I believe that the complex history and the conflicted present of the United States is part of my storytelling lineage.

I love language and believe in the fundamental need for fun and joy. Let's embrace the chaos of process together!

Sneak Peek: The Far Country

More Info: "Decadent artistry." — @KQED Don't miss Lloyd Suh's compelling narrative brought to life by director Jennifer Chang. Catch The Far Country now at Berkeley Rep through April 14. BY LLOYD SUH DIRECTED BY JENNIFER CHANG WEST COAST PREMIERE PEET’S THEATRE MAR 8–APR 14, 2024 TICKETS NOW ON SALE Following a critically acclaimed debut in New York, Pulitzer Prize finalist Lloyd Suh brings The Far Country back to its roots in a triumphant West Coast premiere. In the wake of the Chinese Exclusion Act, Moon Gyet has arrived at San Francisco Bay’s Angel Island Immigration Station with an invented biography and a new name, both given to him by a man who made the same arduous crossing several years earlier. But passage to San Francisco — and the dream of a better life for future generations — commands a very high price. Spanning two countries and three generations, Lloyd Suh’s breathtaking account of immigration, identity, and memory has been called “Artful…an act, loving and sorrowful, of reclamation” by The New York Times.
