Lynn Rosen works in closed session on The Imperialists - a farce-in-progress.

It’s holiday time and The Imperialist tea shop in a newly gentrified Brooklyn enclave is empty. The owners, defiant Kate Bristol and her needy father, Tom, aren’t sure how to attract customers. So when a dashing British stranger offers to get the royal couple to visit the shop on their PR junket in the States, it seems he’ll save the day. But will he? Mayhem, romance, and aggressive extensions of authority ensue.

Melisa Tien continues work with director Tamilla Woodard on her play Red Card, Yellow Card.
