This study examines the significance of the American dream in American ethnic drama. In August Wilson's "The Piano Lesson", Frank Chin's "The Chickencoop Chinaman", and Luis Valdez's "Zoot Suit", the African American, Asian American, and Hispanic American playwrights rearticulate the definition of the American dream for American minority peoples - to rectify their internalized distorted self-image, to implant self-esteem, and to earn the due respect from whites and others.
