Hot Asian Doctor Husband

HOT ASIAN


DOCTOR HUSBAND

by LEAH NANAKO WINKLER
directed by SEONJAE KIM

August 16 - September 1, 2019

 

A SEXY ROM-COM FOR BOTH HOPELESS ROMANTICS & CYNICS

Following the sudden death of her Japanese mother – Emi, a twenty-something biracial woman – begins to urgently question her own legacy. Afraid that she is white-washing her Asian culture that she is now solely responsible for, she dumps her perfect white boyfriend of three years in pursuit of a hot Asian doctor husband. But nobody is what they seem to be in this highly theatrical comedy that asks the question: is love truly blind? Or are our relationships just a carefully curated conglomeration of our own racial bias?
