Book and Lyrics by Khiyon Hursey

EASTBOUND follows CALVIN, an 18 year old adopted Chinese-American boy, who was recently diagnosed with leukemia. Dealing with the loss of his father and receiving news that he needs a bone marrow transplant as soon as possible, he decides to travel to China in search for his biological family. CATHERINE, his African-American adopted sister, accompanies him despite their mother CAROLINE’s disapproval. The show explores clashing racial identities, dealing with loss and what it means to be a family.
