Love and laughs in the Wild West!

A quartet of searching lovers confront some Asian stereotypes of Anglo-America, along with the self-image struggles of Asian-Americans themselves, all the while trying to connect as whole people. This laugh-out-loud romantic comedy explores the sexual dynamics that surface around a young Korean-American woman and her suitors all living in Breakneck, Wyoming – a far too intimate town. Cowboy vs Samurai, a politically edgy and funny story of inter-racial dating and identity, is explored with great humor, irony and human foibles. Please note the playwright intentionally merges Asian culture as a whole to challenge that same conflation done by much of Anglo-America. Tacoma Arts Live has chosen this play to extend its long tradition of diverse programming, and will produce this theatrical experience with a culturally appropriate cast and artistic leadership.
Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Preview Night tickets do not qualify for subscription packages or discounts.
“A hilarious commentary on the racial stereotypes… within a modern day love story.”
