Sleeper opens at Bindlestiff next week
Received this email a few minutes ago, and thought this might prove useful for those wanting some Asian American culture next week. There’ll be a new play showing from July 7 – July 16 at BindleStiff Studio. It’s called “Sleeper,” and it’s produced by the Asian American Theater Company and written by Samantha Chanse (who happens to be a friend of a friend of mine — small world).
Here’s the scoop, verbatim from the email:
Bindlestiff Studio and the Asian American Theater Company premiere a new play about fate, friends, family, & fruit baskets
SLEEPER (A Chronicle of the Return of the Remarkable)
Addicted to playing cards and the half-hearted pursuit of job interviews, a young woman is visited by a young man with a strange invitation: to join him as a would-be prophet. Replete with rapid-fire banter, paranormal activity, and secreted children, Sleeper is a comedic tale of a distracted writer and a long-lost brother in search of activation.
Produced by Bindlestiff Studio and the Asian American Theater Company; written by Samantha Chanse, directed by Oliver Saria, and performed by Alexandra Wong, Susan Chung, Ryan Oden, James Lontayao, and Todd Nakagawa.
