NEW PLAY WORKSHOP

MONUMENT, OR FOUR SISTERS (A SLOTH PLAY) by Sam Chanse

Directed by Lucie Tiberghian

Four gifted Asian American sisters should be thriving. But Amy, a successful biologist studying the collapse of coral reefs, ignores her failing domestic world. Constance, the lone female and non-white writer on a children's cartoon series about animated sloths, compromises for every little victory against stereotypes. Mac is adrift after quitting, for personal reasons she won't discuss, a job she loved. And missing-in-action Lina, the eldest, abandons a stellar academic career to please her toxic husband. A play about fragile ecosystems and how not to go extinct. Is there hope for building resiliency and intimacy?
