2004. A small, suburban town in Long Island, New York. Five Asian American teenage friends battle through a high school telling them they’re too Asian and a home life telling them they’re too American. Finding solace only amongst each other, they attempt to define for themselves what it means to be Asian in America… for better or for worse.
From Ray: “I’m glad to finally (FINALLY—third time’s the charm!) be able to have this reading to close out my Core Writer residency. This is my most personal work and Playwrights’ Center has been my artistic home these past few years so it feels incredibly fitting to do this play among, what is essentially, my Minnesota family. The play has had quite a journey to get here and I'm excited to see how it continues to evolve from this process.”
