Hi everyone! I wanted to take the time to tell you a bit about myself so you aren’t auditioning for a total stranger. She Kills Monster is a rather important play to me. It’s by one of my favorite playwrights in the world, Qui Nguyen. He’s a master in writing funny and hard-hitting plays. He’s a man before his time in that he was writing P.o.C-driven plays with female leads before it was “cool.” I can’t recommend his works enough. He’s an Asian-American, like me, and I think it’s important that the people who we haven’t heard from get the spotlight. My vision for She Kills Monsters is simple but definitely eccentric. I want to bring the whimsy and excitement of DnD to life and I’m looking for actors who are game (pun intended) to just explore and work hard. This show has critical value and brings issues that are important to me to the forefront. It provides representation to the people who deserve it now, more than ever. I will be the first to admit that I am definitely a funky director. If you work with me, you’re gonna be trying some crazy shit, doing even weird stuff, and I’ll probably dance in front of you when I have no idea what I’m trying to say. But, I do promise that I will listen to whatever you have to say, and I do my best to foster a familial camaraderie in all my shows. If any of this entices you, please audition. I promise to keep an open mind and I can’t wait to meet you all.
