The Brothers Paranormal

Prince Gomolvilas

Prince Gomolvilas

A workshop staged reading
Directed by Kate Duffly
with live music by Joe Kye
January 19-21, 2018
at PSU’s Lincoln Hall, Boiler Room Theatre

Cast includes: Samson Syharath, Elaine Low, Josie Seid, Jasper Howard, Melissa Magana and Savira Kambhu. With original music performed by Joe Kye.
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.
