AATAB Online

A virtual reading series

About AATAB Online
We've gathered theatre artists from the AATAB community, the Boston theatre community, and friends across the country that are now virtually available, to explore a play in development by a Boston-based Asian American playwright, and experiment with how we can become even more creative storytellers through Zoom. The series is produced with support from Company One Theatre and the Pao Arts Center.

For this reading we would like to amplify The Transgender Emergency Fund and Massachussetts Asian + Pacific Islander for Health.
The Transgender Emergency Fund is the only organization dedicated to supporting low income and homeless Transgender individuals in Massachusetts.

MAP for Health is a nonprofit where API LGBTQ+ youth can come together to find support, make friends, and learn how to lead healthy lives.

Asian American Theatre Artists of Boston (AATAB) is a social collective that seeks to empower and connect Asian American, Pacific Islander American, MENA American, and Kanaka Maoli theatre artists in the Greater Boston area. Find us on Facebook or Instagram.
