THE CONNECTION - A SUBWAY STORY

September 30th & October 1st, 2006

Multisoup Productions are announcing the workshop production of the latest work by a Japanese-born playwright Masayo Nishimura. The Connection is a new play featuring two new Asian American actresses, Faith Wu and Michelle Amosco. The Connection is a play about the missed connection between two Japanese women who arrived in the Big Apple two decades ago. In 1986, two Japanese women, Rumi and Mika, were roommates at a Women's' Residence in NYC. Twenty years later, the two women meet by happy coincidence—on the subway. They share laughs, cry, and meanwhile piece together the exact circumstances behind their hasty separation. As their conversation progresses, it becomes clear that their short room share two decades ago changed their lives forever...
