There is very little that can be as satisfying as a great ending to a story... star-crossed lovers riding off into the sunset, a long lost friend returning to the fold, a resolute cowboy succumbing to his injuries with profound grace. These images impact us and shape the way we tell stories. SEQUELS begs the question, what happened after that beautiful ending. Three exciting writers take a stab at answering.
What happened to Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz after she returned home? What was the next Christmas like for Carmela Soprano? Or the Peanuts gang after Charles Schultz passed away? Join us at MOCA to find out when Nora Chau (PRETTY PRECIOUS UNICORNS), Ed Lin (THIS IS A BUST), and Kai Ma (OPEN CITY) create original sequels to three great stories and a rambunctious cast of actors present the works as a staged reading directed by Ken Leung (LOST).
Cast includes: Cindy Cheung, Louis Changchien, Kristine Haruna Lee, Angela Lin, Jodi Lin, David Shih, and more.
