We were honored to co-produce the world premiere of MUTT from playwright Christopher Chen with Impact Theatre, directed by Evren Odcikin.
The Republican Party finally —finally! — realizes it has a problem with race. So it decides its best chance for success in the 2016 presidential election is to back a candidate who's Hapa — of mixed Asian descent. They think they've found their man in Nick, a promising Congressmember. But when Nick doesn't conform to their expectations of who he should be, they turn to Len, a multiracial war hero who can check off every single box — and maybe a couple more boxes no one knows about. A blisteringly funny satire that skewers not only the elephants in the room but the donkeys too, Mutt burns down the entire house of racial cards.
Featuring Patricia Austin, Michael Uy Kelly, Matthew Lai, Marilet Martinez, Lawrence Radecker, and Michelle Talgarow
