Contemporary Asian Theater Scene and JAMsj present Summer Hangout Series: Stage Readings . This program engages high school and college aged actors to experience plays written by Asian American playwrights. This theater exercise will showcase a pivotal moment in the young thespian endeavor.   

In Leah Nanako Winkler’s GOD SAID THIS a mother is diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer. The father is a recovering alcoholic seeking redemption, and the two daughters are struggling to overcome their differences. Forced together in a time of need, these estranged people come face to face with their own mortality.
