"I am thrilled to welcome Damon Chua to Keen Company," Keen Company artistic director Carl Forsman said in a statement. "After an extensive search, the board and I concluded that we had found an excellent candidate to partner with me and continue Keen's tradition of producing quality plays off-Broadway. Damon brings a wealth of skills that will continue Keen's growth as we focus on expanding our offerings, widening our reach, and championing plays that examine the value of living a life of generosity and compassion. We are both thrilled about this season that features two fantastic writers in Lanford Wilson and Tina Howe, and we can't wait to welcome audiences back for our twelfth season."
