Write Act Repertory's Playwright Spotlight Series featuring the work of Rochelle Perry continues our 21st Anniversary Season
produced Tamra Pica and John Lant.

Write Act Repertory's annual playwrights series returns in our NOHO home spotlighting prominent and award-winning Los Angeles playwright Rochelle Perry at the Brickhouse Theater as we continue our 21st season with UNFORGETTABLE.

When unwilling fashion major Rita is forced to spend her last college spring break with her 86-year old Japanese grandmother Keiko, she realizes Keiko suffers from a disease she knows little about - dementia. When she was young her grandmother taught her about the world. Now it's her turn to remind her grandmother of her past. Through Japanese folktales and fantasy-filled stories, Rita discovers her grandparents' unforgettable love for each other, a love she hopes to have for herself in this new American generation.

"We are honored that Ms. Perry chose Write Act Rep to present her newly expanded two-act play. She has been an Artist-in-Residence for 15 years and has been a great ambassador of everything we do at Write Act Rep," states Lant. "I could not be prouder of the work we do here and the environment of safety we provide for brave voices, like Rochelle's, that wish to reach out to the community through their writings. Her positive attitude and forward thinking pushing for more female playwright opportunities is one of the reasons we are here."

Our feature creative artists include Tracy S. Lee (Rita), Randi Tahara (Keiko), George Infantado (Joseph), Ami Shimada (Young Keiko), Godfrey Flax (Marc/Police Officer) and Diane Chernansky (Doctor).

The shows Production Team Members include John Lant (Producing Artistic Director), Tamra Pica (Producer), Rochelle Perry (Playwright), Cassie Soliday (Director), Isabel Gallegos (Costume Designer), Jonathan Harrison (Associate Producer) and Lynn Barzola (Graphic Designer).

I fell in love instantly with Perry's script, states Director Cassie Soliday. The juxtaposition of a young life ready to begin and an old life's memory failing is beautiful and heartbreaking. The characters come alive off the page and I can see my own relationship with my grandmother reflected back at me as well as my complicated feelings of aging! I'm thrilled to get to explore this space with the talented cast and crew at Write Act Rep.

Rochelle Perry conceptualized this play after witnessing her maternal grandparents struggling with dementia. She first workshopped its one-act version, Japan 1946 Meets California 2010, at the David Henry Huang Writers Institute at East West Players. After her staged reading, people commented about her development as a playwright, saying that it was one of the most mature pieces shes written. A year later she went on to co-produce it with Write Act Repertory in Hollywood. Since then she has expanded the piece into the full length play it is today. 2019 is an especially important year to mount this title as it represents the decade-long journey of a conceptual homage to a personal denouement, (earlier this year her grandfather passed away, the month of October marks the month of her grandmother's birthday followed by her death in 2013, just months after Perry's wedding. Perry, now 35, also just gave birth to a daughter of her own.) Coming from a diverse background - her Japanese, Chinese, and Filipino heritage mixed with her American upbringing - Perry strives to bring an Asian audience to the theatre.  A large number of her one act plays have been produced, but this is her first full length play to make its world premiere.
