Legacy Codes

“In writing The Legacy Codes, the term itself became the play’s central metaphor. In newspaper accounts of the Wen Ho Lee case, the classified legacy codes which caused the uproar were described as computer simulations of plutonium explosions. The term is also used by computer experts for any archaic codes which are still necessary to run complex computer programs. For me the term can also be interpreted as the DNA genetic code, it can be interpreted as what is passed on in families regarding culture, family secrets, genetic traits. It also can relate to how people and institutions want to be remembered in the future.”

Playwright Cherylene Lee

The Legacy Codes opens at 7 tonight in Manhattan.

  1. Thanks for enriching my vocabulary with a new phrase and giving me the headsup on this bit of cultural novelty.
