Please join The Road Theatre Company in celebrating the vibrant, diverse, and inspiring voices of Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage.

Below are artistic expressions of such reverence, performed and/or created by members of our company over the years.


Pang Spa by David Johann Kim

On the outskirts of Los Angeles’ Koreatown, the Pang family, who were ruined by the ’92 LA riots, are now dealing with dementia, depression and loss when a mysterious young woman, Dora, arrives—and paradigms begin to shift. PANG SPA celebrates family, memory and identity… and the fact that a spa is anywhere that healing can at least begin…

Directed by Alberto Isaac

Featuring: Peter James Smith, Ken Narasaki, Ann Hearn, Jacqueline Misaye, Emily Kuroda, Kennedy Kabasares, and Samantha Tan.

(Un)rivaled by Rosie Narasaki

11th Century ladies-in-waiting Murasaki Shikibu and Sei Shonagon are, to this day, two of Japan’s most beloved writers. They also kinda hated each other. This play is about friendship, heartbreak, and what it means to be a female artist. Perhaps most of all, it’s about how no matter how much things change, the more they stay the same… Even after a thousand years.

Directed by Jully Lee

Featuring: Jessica Jade Andres, Audrey Cain, Jacqueline Misaye, David Huynh, and Tally McCormack.
