ABOUT THIS SHOW
In an act of rebellion against their perceived cultural identity, two Chinese-American newlyweds improvise a reckless plot to commit armed robbery to afford a modest honeymoon. A comedic, full length play with live singing and musicians inspired by classic country western and folk.
The Asian Pacific American (APA) population is seriously under represented on stage. Our Perspective: Asian American Play Readings is a staged play reading series intended to provide inspiration, space, and audiences for Midwest APA playwrights, directors, and actors. These are script-in-hand concert readings where actors read plays written and directed by local Asian American theatre artists. Presented by Asian Improv Arts Midwest’s AA Arts Incubator, Our Perspective is the first ever Asian American play reading series in the Midwest. These history making events are long overdue.
