Write Act Repertory with John Lant and Anne Mesa will present the West Coast Premiere of Expect-Asian, a solo show, written and performed by Jeffrey Han. Coming off of Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, the voices of Asian Americans continue with this one man show about a young Asian American who ventures out on a quest to find his identity amidst being torn between his father’s strict standards, and social pressures from his peers.  Opening June 8, 2024 at Write Act Repertory at The Brickhouse.


Expect-Asian is a coming-of-age story that centers on Jack, a young Asian American, and his quest to find his identity. While on his journey, he is constantly being torn between his father’s strict standards, and being accepted by his peers. After crushing social rejections, and cultural disappointments, he learns to trust himself, and stand on his own two feet. Expect-Asian sheds light on cultural and identity issues affecting young Asian Americans.
