Big News in October and January!

Two Theatre Diaspora members are working on Artists Repertory Theatre’s CAUGHT, a play by Christopher Chen in collaboration with an art installation Oct. 1-29.

Dmae Roberts & Samson Syharath

Dmae Roberts (MediaRites executive producer) returns to acting in a full production with CAUGHT. Samson Syharath is the assistant director. Be sure to “catch” this unusual comedic, genre-bending production of live theatre and installation art. Ripped from the headlines of “fake news” CAUGHT brings to light themes of truth and deception in the worlds of art and journalism. CAUGHT also asks the question: “When does cultural appropriation begin?” Previews begin Oct. 1st and the show runs Wed-Sun till Oct. 29th.

Synopsis: Two Thai-American brothers launch a ghost-hunting business in order to capitalize on the nationwide increase in sightings of Asian-looking ghosts. When the siblings end up investigating the home of an African American couple who claim to be haunted by one very terrifying spirit, everyone’s notions of reality, fantasy, and sanity clash against the shocking truth.  At its heart this play is an modern allegory about grief, loss and healing for communities of color.
