As We Babble On

By Nathan Ramos
Winner of East West Players’ 2042: See Change Playwriting Competition

Directed by Alison M. De La Cruz

May 31 – June 24, 2018

As We Babble On explores the pursuit of success, its costs, and whether the whole adulting thing is ever going to happen. Benji, a first-generation Asian American comic book artist, struggles in New York City when his dreams are pulled from under him and an ex-boyfriend resurfaces. As the unconventional path of his bestie Sheila takes a left turn, and his half-sister Laura unexpectedly finds herself on the fast track to success, each begins to unravel. 

In Partnership with the Los Angeles LGBT Center
