East West Players in association with the Japanese American National Museum presents a WRITERS GALLERY reading of a new play by Prince Gomolvilas:

THE BROTHERS PARANORMAL

Two Thai-American brothers launch a ghost-hunting business in order to capitalize on the nationwide increase in sightings of “Asian-looking ghosts.” When the enterprising siblings meet a couple that claims to be haunted by one very terrifying spirit, everyone’s notions of reality, fantasy, and sanity clash against the shocking truth.

Admission is FREE!
