acquires the archive of Filipina-American playwright Jeannie Barroga
The creative process of Barroga, 

and numerous other dramatic works, is captured through correspondence, journals and production binders.  

STANFORD, CA--Born in Milwaukee, Jeannie Barroga headed west to northern California after college where her career as a playwright took shape. Barroga often draws upon her Filipino background in her writings, which have 

She is also the most produced Filipina-American playwright having plays performed across the globe.  
“The rich archive will be of great interest to students and scholars of Asian diasporic and American theater,” said Rebecca Wingfield, the curator at Stanford Libraries who will maintain Barroga’s archive.  

Locally, Barroga has worked as a playwright, producer, director, dramaturge and literary manager at both the Oakland Ensemble Theater and Palo Alto’s TheatreWorks as well as artistic directors at both the Asian American Theater Company and Teatro ng Tanan, both in San Francisco. 

According to Robert Kelley, TheatreWorks Artistic Director, “Barroga is not only one of the country’s leading Filipina-American playwrights, she is a prototype of a new American playwright as well, writing from the hub of a hundred cultural intersections on a troubled landscape.” 

Barroga has received numerous awards over the thirty-five years of playwriting, including the Wallace Alexander Gerbode and William and Flora Hewlett Foundations Collaboration Award with Kularts Artistic Director, Alleluia Panis for Buffalo’ed at San Jose Stage Company; the National Endowment for the Arts Access to Artistic Excellence for Walls at the Asian American Theater Company; Best Original Production in Solano at Mira Theatre Vallejo; and the
