Lao American Playwrights in San Diego

At Little Laos on the Prairie we had a recent overview of the the Lao American playwrights staged reading at the Old Globe Theater in San Diego's Balboa Park.

The playwrights included Pim Siripanyo, Viliya Ketavong, Carol Manisouk, Kinnalone Bee Savatdy, Khamp “Nong” Thongrivone, Rainier Ronquillo, Phatthason Manisouk, Bidone Salima, Sunny Chantharathip and Bandith Xaysana.

They had an interesting range looking at various slices of Asian American and particularly Lao American life. There were historic pieces, comedies, and experimental works presented. It will be interesting to see where they all are ten years from now. Here's hoping they receive the support they deserve in the coming years ahead to really bring their works to life the way they're meant to be seen.
