Asian American Theatre Artists of Boston (AATAB) and API Arts Network proudly present a FREE staged reading of THIS IS NOT A TRUE STORY by Preston Choi, followed by a post-show conversation at the Pao Arts Center. Light refreshments will be provided!
"The heroine of Madame Butterfly completes her tragic suicide, only to wake up trapped in a never-ending loop of her story. Then Miss Saigon is born thrusting another heroine into the deadly cycle, until a mysterious office woman throws the world out of balance. ‘This Is Not A True Story’ unravels the history of Orientalist art, theatre, and the danger of fiction becoming reality." (from New Play Exchange)
Directed by Audrey Seraphin and Michael A. Rosegrant.
