presents a world premiere play by Alex Park


April 1-24

Macho Bravado is the story of Evan Cho, a Korean American soldier who has just returned from fighting in the Middle East to find a greater battle at home over his love, his identity, and his masculinity. Although Evan couldn't bring himself to tell his wife Lindsey that he had become sterile during the war, she greets him with wonderful news: she's pregnant. Confronted with questions of infidelity and self-doubt, both Evan and Lindsey struggle to maintain the macho bravado that defined their relationship before the war. This is a story that goes beyond the post-traumatic stress that a soldier and his wife experience, and ventures deep into their journey to forgive themselves and to forgive each other.

The San Francisco Chronicle recently gave the play a great review, calling it "a dynamic verbal battle of macho posturing, racial epithets, creative cussing and frontier pride."
