Drama in the Family

East West Players’ Writers Gallery presented a reading of “Spoiled,” a play by Ken Narasaki, on Oct. 17 at the Japanese American National Museum’s Tateuchi Democracy Forum. In this dark comedy, a Japanese American mother and her adult children, Joe and Josie, function well in the world but become a hot mess when they get together.

Narasaki, who is also an actor, has written such plays as “Innocent When You Dream,” “Ghosts and Baggage,” and the stage adaptation of “No-No Boy.” (Photo by J.K. YAMAMOTO/Rafu Shimpo)
