The Brothers Paranormal
About The Brothers Paranormal
Pan Asian Repertory Theatre in its 42nd milestone season in 2019 is expanding on themes of diversity with the World Premiere of "The Brothers Paranormal" by Prince Gomolvilas, directed by Jeff Liu.
"The Brothers Paranormal" is a ghost story, it has many of the entertaining elements that people find in the genre: a supernatural, possibly deadly force, a mystery as to its nature, the banding together of ordinary humans to face it; moments of terror, of surprise, of humor, of genuine human connection.
Prince Gomolvilas writes, "The play's intersection of genre and race, as well as the exploration of the spirit realm in a country that’s doing some deep soul-searching, is what drives my passion for this project. All of my research explores the play’s disparate themes: the trauma of displacement (from one’s country of origin, from post-Katrina New Orleans, from the corporeal world); the high incidence of mental health issues among Asian immigrants; and the different ways in which people cope with incredible loss."
The show may not be appropriate for children who are under 8. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
