Artists at Play 2016 Spring Readings: Two Plays, One Day
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 plays by Asian American playwrights that feature hugely diverse casts. Artists at Play presents these readings in conjunction with East West Players as part of their Next Wave Festival of new works

As We Babble On explores what lengths we are willing to go to realize our dreams, whether morality is tied to upward mobility and whether boxed wine and soda is an appropriate sangria recipe after the age of 24.

By Leah Nanako Winkler
Directed by Deena Selenow
Dramaturgy by Michael Golamco

When the Donnelly's gather for a weekend in the country to gather their belongings for their recently sold estate, both an internal storm and a literal storm brews. As this brood of famous, longing-to-be-famous and kind of a mess but totally Caucasian family comes together with their personal assistant, Charlotte, some really really really really really complicated and totally unique secrets are revealed (over white wine). A parody coupled with moments of disorienting sincerity, Two Mile Hollow explores the dysfunctional family genre with brutality, awe and compassion. Learn more about Leah Nanako Winkler and Two Mile Hollow.

Each reading will be followed by a talkback.

$13 admission includes the mid-day reception and hosted bar. (All readings are complimentary.)
