Written by Lyra Nalan

Conceived by Jamil Khoury

In Partnership with Peacedale Global Arts


Road Less Traveled is an evolving live theatre piece, conceived by Jamil Khoury and written by Lyra Nalan, that parallels Robert Frost’s iconic poem, “The Road Not Taken” (1915) with the extraordinary life of Chinese American trailblazer Tye Leung Schulze (1887-1972). The poem provides a fascinating framework for mapping Tye’s life choices and the legacy she left behind. Nalan’s experience as a Chinese immigrant storyteller offers a unique window into America’s ongoing conversations about choice, individualism, and freedom through a creative imagining of Tye Leung Schulze’s road less traveled.
