Artists at Play presents our 2019 Spring Readings in partnership with the USC Pacific Asia Museum. This year we're featuring BONOBOS by Lina Patel (April 4) and THIS IS NOT A TRUE STORY by Preston Choi (April 11). Admission to the readings is free and includes a post-show talkback. Plus explore the USC Pacific Asia Museum with complimentary admission starting at 5 pm.

Continuing our mission to present stories of underrepresented communities, Artists at Play will develop and showcase these new works to the Los Angeles theatre community. In the midst of a national discussion on the lack of diversity and representation, we are proud to present two new plays by playwrights of Asian descent featuring a diverse cast.

April 4
BONOBOS
By Lina Patel
Directed by Sara Israel
Four women extricate a friend from a bad relationship. Chaos ensues. A darkly comedic telenovela for the stage, Bonobos looks at female friendships and loyalty and wonders, why can’t two wrongs equal a right?

April 11
THIS IS NOT A TRUE STORY
By Preston Choi
Directed by Reena Dutt
The heroine of Madame Butterfly completes her tragic suicide, only to wake up trapped in a never ending loop of her story. Then Miss Saigon is born thrusting another heroine into the deadly cycle, until a mysterious office woman throws the world out of balance. This Is Not A True Story unravels the history of Orientalist art, theatre, and the danger of fiction becoming reality.
