ADMISSION IS FREE but parking costs, unless you can find free street parking. (This is a staged reading, so no costumes, props or lights. Just some great acting and directing.)
The play was developed at the David Henry Hwang Writer's Institute, in the Advanced Playwriting Class taught by Prince Gomolvilas.
Nissei Week will be in full swing, if you want to make a full day of it in Little Tokyo. There's also a very funny play reading before mine at 6PM, in the same theater:
SLICE by Paul Kikuchi
Set in 14th century Japan, struggling swordsmith KAI MATSUDA wants to forge the perfect samurai sword. Unfortunately, he’s on a tight deadline, lost his creative punch and trying not to think about FUMI TANAKA. A comedy about art, love and some serious banging.
