World Premiere
By Perry Miyake
Directed by Alberto Isaac

Martin is 48-years old, single, works a dead-end job and lives at home with his aging Nisei parents Mits and Helen. His bachelor status is the perfect target for his meddling parents and their gossip-hungry friends. Then Gina, a white, 24-year old pierced and tattooed gothic chick enters Martin’s life. What’s a parent to do? MOTTY-CHON is a comedy that shatters stereotypes about parental expectations and the search for love from the playwright of VISITORS FROM NAGASAKI and DOUGHBALL.
