The PFP production schedule 2018 features fun both on the big scale and on the small. On the smaller scale are a full set of staged readings of new works by Asian American playwrights, showcasing what’s going on across the country in Asian American theatre. On the big scale is a joint production with fellow Asian American theatre REBATEnsemble (aka Recession Era Broke-Ass Theatre Ensemble) called…The Night Parade.
The Night Parade is an original, immersive, and site-specific theatre production. The Night Parade reimagines the Japanese folk legend of the Hyakki Yako (lit. “night parade of a hundred demons”) as a walking tour/immersive experience play where audience members encounter and are introduced to characters from the spirit world inspired by Japanese folklore. The Night Parade is an inclusive cultural experience aimed at sharing stories inspired by the East Asian myth in the hopes of bridging cultural barriers with the use of storytelling and the shared experience of being spirited away.
Watch for The Night Parade this fall!
