Inspired by a true story, MONSTER takes place in a California desert suburb where Vietnamese-American detective Tang Tran investigates the disappearance of a high school student following a brutal hate crime. MONSTER is a noir-esque production that uses multi-media to create an atmosphere where perspective manipulates objectivity and guilt fuses with innocence, revealing that Monsters don't only live underneath our beds - they also live within us.
Sounds like a really interesting, innovative production. Preview performances start this week. For further information about Monster, and to purchase tickets, go to the Pan Asian Repertory Theatre website here.
