Coming to America:
Boat Person & Antecedent
Winner of 2016 Colorado Theatre Festival’s Best Production, Best Actress, Best Lighting, Excellence in Set Design and People’s Choice: Theatre Esprit Asia’s Coming to America: Boat Person & Antecedents is two powerful, poignant and very humorous one-acts on immigration to the US from two war-torn countries. Boat Person is told by the son of a couple who survives the fall of Saigon and the perils of the high seas. Antecedents, by an aging daughter, recollects her Chinese parents’ traumatic suffering under the Japanese occupation and then under Communist rule. Both stories are also insightful commentaries on the pursuit of the American Dream.
