Theater Mu is excited to produce Leah Nanako Winkler’s new play Hot Asian Doctor Husband — directed by Seonjae Kim.

We are seeking:

EMI: mid-to-late 20s female. Mixed race Asian and white. An inquisitive yet kind force who is dealing with trauma.

COLLIN: 20s-early 30s male. White but woke. Sweet. Understanding. Sensitive. The type of guy who you can bring home to your parents. Must be able to carry a tune/play basic guitar. 

VERONICA: 20s female. Person of color- “ethnically ambiguous” but not white passing. She knows she is beautiful and smart but can’t seem to find her match. Self-aware and a badass. Really into self-care.

HOT ASIAN DOCTOR HUSBAND: 30s-40s. A hot Asian doctor husband.


SYNOPSIS

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?
