The Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre is back with another round of plays developed through our MSG Theatre Lab Program – this year, they are presenting exciting new work by two talented emerging Asian playwrights. Yesterday, playwright and local actor, director, and musician, Chris Lam presents a stage reading of Shanghai Black Beer, a sensitive and absurdist play that follows four young Asian characters in an evening of shared secrets and disturbing lies.
Unfortunately, if you just found out about the reading through this blog post, you’ve missed it – but there’s another reading tomorrow by producer, actor and playwright Carolyn Nagakawa. Nakagawa will present a reading of Trig Variations, a showcase of separate stories exploring different relationships and interactions. Three actors take on various roles in this inventive and witty piece.
