spookfish theatre company presents wabi sabi! not wasabi

I didn't get a chance to mention this last week, but if you're in New York and want to see a new original play, you've still got a chance to check out the second weekend of Wabi Sabi! Not Wasabi by Ming Peiffer, presented by the Spookfish Theatre Company. There will be performances this weekend at the Theater for the New City. Here are some more details:
Wabi Sabi! Not Wasabi.

Written by Ming Peiffer
Developed with and Directed by Kat Yen

Feeling like outsiders since childhood, best friends Hailey Chen and Lillian Chin have been planning their escape from their hometown in whitewashed suburbia to pursue lives of fame and fortune in the giant melting pot of New York City. But their plans for "living the high life" quickly disintegrate when their dream loft in Soho turns out to be a one bedroom in Flushing, and Lillian's native Chinese cousin unexpectedly tags along. As the girls attempt to fulfill their juvenile plans for success, their own differences become evident as they are forced to confront the dysphoria attached to their ethnic roots and explore their own prejudices concerning sexuality, self-identity, and issues of race and society as first generation Asian-Americans.

Starring Janice Amano, Natsuko Aoike, Alton Alburo, Rachel Lin, Steve Lin, Tony Mui, and Ming Peiffer
