A Public Reading Produced by Ma-Yi Theater
By Sung Rno
Directed by Andrew Pang
Starring Paul Juhn, Stephen Park, David Shih, and Shannon Tyo
November 16th at 7 PM (doors 6:30)
Fred & Adele Astaire Ballroom
Two filmmakers find themselves in LA after winning a short film contest. Trapped in a seedy K-town hotel, they struggle to come up with a story pitch. Then a mysterious woman arrives—can she open doors or is she an agent of historical vengeance? A meta dark comedy.
The Reading will take place at Houghton Hall in the Fred and Adele Astaire Ballroom located at 22 East 30th St, New York, NY 10016.
We highly encourage masking during this reading. Face masks, as well as other PPE supplies, will be provided onsite.
