This contemporary play spans from the Bible belt to Rangoon, Burma. A family of Indian immigrants must deal with seductions of American life, while trying to keep its heritage alive. RANGOON is funny and tragic— a quintessential 21st century American tale.
Pan Asian Repertory Theatre, in our 35th Anniversary Season, presents RANGOON, a world premiere that continues our commitment to telling stories from the pan Asian spectrum, and the centerpiece of our Season long focus on India.
“Rangoon revisits Arthur Miller’s take on the American Dream from an Indian point of view, updating it for the new millennium and its unique challenges…
As a playwright, I strive to expose the injustices and inequalities of a world that too often fails to probe the shadowy corners where the truth resides, hidden away from those who need it by those who fear it.” –playwright Mayank Keshaviah
