"Our Perspective: Asian American Play Readings” is a staged play reading series intended to provide inspiration, space, and audiences for Midwest Asian Pacific American playwrights, directors, and actors. These are script-in-hand concert readings where actors read plays written and directed by Asian Pacific Americans at Chicago’s top theaters. 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.
