|Types of Material
East West Players is an Asian American theatre, and most of the new works produced revolve around Asian Pacific American (as opposed to Asian) characters and/or themes. EWP is looking for both comedy and drama, in English and financially viable (which includes considerations such as cast size, number of sets, etc.), and they don’t necessarily have to be "issue-oriented," in that race can be an unspoken component in the work.
Writers are strongly encouraged to browse through the EWP production history, which can be found here.
