Artists at Play had an amazing year because of you. Thank you for purchasing tickets, making financial contributions, volunteering hours, and giving us words of encouragement and votes of confidence, all of which propelled us through a successful 2012.

Our presentation of the Los Angeles premiere of Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them by A. Rey Pamatmat raised the bar of Artists at Play’s contribution to Los Angeles theatre. The show garnered an Ovation Recommendation (special recognition as one of the best plays running at the time), and critical-acclaim from LA Weekly, and Audiences fell in love with the production and its story of family and first love.

As we embark on our third year, we hope you continue to support Artists at Play. Please consider a year-end tax-deductible donation to help us accomplish our mission of presenting shows curated by Asian American theatre professionals that tell the stories of communities underrepresented in Los Angeles theatre.

In 2013, we expand our programming to include new play development. Artists at Play founding member Peter J. Kuo will work on the next draft of his play Three Steps Back, in collaboration with a director and cast of actors. The new version will be presented publicly along with another to-be-determined play for a day of staged readings in the spring.

We are currently in the process of deciding on the play for our fall production. It will be another Los Angeles premiere by a rising Asian American playwright as our projects focus on cultivating the next generation of theatre artists and audience members. We will continue to build on the artistic quality and professionalism of our inaugural show Ching Chong Chinaman by Lauren Yee and sophomore production, Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them.

In the spirit of giving this holiday season, we hope you will help Artists at Play reach our goals in 2013 with an online tax-deductible donation. Your contribution makes you a partner in our mission to curate quality theatre in Los Angeles. Thank you for an awesome 2012, and we look forward to sharing the new year with you!

Happy Holidays from Artists at Play
Julia Cho, Peter J. Kuo, Stefanie Lau and Marie-Reine Velez
