Leviathan Lab Announces Directors And Casting For Its National Filipino American History Month Reading Series

In celebration of National Filipino American History Month, Leviathan Lab will present readings of three new plays by rising Filipino American Playwrights in October 2021.

Leviathan Lab will present its reading series featuring three evenings of new plays by Filipino American Playwrights, presented in celebration of National Filipino American History Month. The plays examine urgent issues facing Filipino Americans today. The playwrights interrogate what it means to be Filipino American now, in an America and world ravaged by COVID, anti-Asian hate, anti-Blackness, and white supremacy. The series' featured playwrights include Claro de los Reyes (Founder & Director, Atlantic Pacific Theatre), Cherry Lou Sy (Finalist, Emerging Writers Group, The Public), and Kristine M. Reyes (Semi-Finalist, O'Neill National Playwrights Conference).
