Dawn is about to break over a sleepy city, but bakers, drinkers, parents, and pigeons are already on the go, also a hungry rabbit that lives on the moon. Lives, green and mature, human and animal, weave and wobble on their ways. Small Journeys Before the Unbreakable Dawnis a surreal kaleidoscope of life in the ephemeral time before the Sun rises.
A staged reading of a quirky, humorous new work by a rising star in Asian American theatre, Small Journeys is directed by Mario Gomez and features the work of Eva Estrada-Campos, Frankie Sun, Kathy Hsieh, Manny Golez, Michael D. Blum, Owen Yen, Stephen Sumida, Sunam Ellis and Aviona Rodriguez Brown
