I would like to invite you to the reading of my new play, HEARTBREAK/INDIA, taking place next Monday, October 5th (7PM) at Theater for a New City. HEARTBREAK/INDIA is a new work-in-progress that tells the story of ONE, a high-ranking UN diplomat who falls in love with his Korean-Chilean-American intern, “X, Y, Z.” As their common love for power and politics intensifies, ONE decides to end his relationship with his Korean-Chilean-American wife “A,B,C,” putting in jeopardy a new UN framework for world peace.
After the reading, I’ll be going out for a drink or two to celebrate my birthday! But Kyoung–why don’t you have a birthday party like a normal person? I have a short play up at EST on October 8th-10th. I’ll probably be in rehearsals, or class, so it’s just super crazy right now.
I hope to see you next week!
