School of Drama undergraduates have been teaming up with Intiman Theatre Casting Director Ali el-Gasseir to bring the crazy world of The Inexplicable Redemption of Agent G to life!
When playwright Qui Nguyen refuses to finish his "Gook Story Trilogy," his main character kidnaps him and force him to pen the story he's been avoiding for ten years, in this hysterical meta-theatrical ride filled with racist puppets, ninjas, and one very angry David Henry Hwang.
This is director Ali el-Gasseir's second production with the School of Drama, after directing Walk Across America for Mother Earth in collaboration with the Washington Ensemble Theatre last February. “The Inexplicable Redemption of Agent G is a messy, goofy, intersectionally dynamic, and hilarious play about the ownership of truth,” says el-Gassier. “Through a bad ass prismatic lens of Jackie Chan, Wu Tang Clan, and Tarantino, Qui Nguyen's deconstruction of genre, race, and gender politics is the ultra-timely play we need.”
