Tony Winner Speaks at McBride Lecture

Tony Award winner David Henry Hwang spoke at the eighth- annual McBride Lecture for Faith and Literature in October.

Hwang received a Tony Award for the 1998 production of “M Butterfly.” His most recent work to be performed on Broadway is “Chinglish,” a satirical look at the use of English in business communication between Western and Chinese enterprises. He received the Steinberg Award for American Drama in 2012.

The McBride Lecture served as the keynote address for the Southwest Conference on Christianity and Literature, which brought scholars from five surrounding states to OC’s campus.

“At Oklahoma Christian, we aspire to transform the lives of our students, faculty and community toward greater scholarship, faith and service. This always has included a vigorous public engagement with the humanities,” said Dr. Scott LaMascus (84), director of OC’s McBride Center for Public Humanities. “Bailey McBride (54) loves people and ideas, so nothing could be more natural than honoring Bailey and Joyce with these activities.”
