I have routinely been told my plays can’t be programmed by various theatre companies because they’ve already programed ONE Asian playwright. Can we please move beyond the “there can only be one” mentality? We are not a monolith. There is such a diversity of experiences and cultures within the AAPI community and everyone deserves a chance to be heard.
