I Am "America's Foremost Thai-American Writer"

I have a play opening in Seattle this month. In the theater company's press materials, I am described as "America's foremost Thai-American writer." Ha ha ha ha ha! These guys are bigger comedians than I am! Ha ha ha ha ha!

If you're in Washington, come see this show. You do realize that I keep a mental file of all the people who do and who do not attend my productions, right? I believe an entire movie franchise was even created around the fact that Asian people hold grudges.

Seven Asian Americans gather atop a Las Vegas wedding chapel every week and discover a unique personal bond as they each search for their own life's meaning. This vibrant and insightful comedy won the International Herald Tribune/SRT Playwriting Competition, the Julie Harris Playwright Award, and the PEN Center USA West Literary Award for Drama. A funny, moving, brilliantly written play about life and the meaning of existence by America's foremost Thai-American writer.

"A refreshing look at Asian-American issues of race, gender, and identity, layered with deeper questions of life and death. Gomolvilas's writing is tight, intelligent and funny.... Likeable characters and sharply written dialogue.... A play worth seeing for its humor and humanity."
