a reading

written and directed by Vichet Chum

Run time: 2 hrs 20 min, including 15 min. intermission
Advisory: Strong language, references to alcohol and smoking, discussion of Cambodian Genocide, and the death of loved ones.

Acclaimed author Sovanna has hit a wall with his writing and his relationship. At the encouragement of his partner Leo, the two travel to Cleveland for a change of scenery and much needed respite. Immediately, Sovanna encounters the cantankerous Hungarian/German/Cambodian ghost of Leo’s grandmother. Trying to live beside a specter while also offering to mentor a young visual artist, an overwhelmed Sovanna finds himself on an unexpected journey towards the truth of his present situation. A witty and moving story of how we grapple with legacy and representation—and how art can help us navigate both.
