Synopsis: A Language of Their Own is a lyrical and dramatic meditation on the nature of desire and sexuality as four men—three Asian and one white—come together and drift apart in a series of interconnection stories.

About AATAB Online:
We’ve gathered (and still are gathering!) 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.
Our goal is to find new ways for us to gather and celebrate our community, and to find some joy through collaboration and creativity during these unknown, frustrating, and difficult times, all while raising money for organizations in need! Past organizations we’ve amplified include The Okra Project, BAMS Fest, The Official Navajo COVID-19 Relief Fund, The Navajo & Hopi Families COVID-19 Relief Fund, Asian Artists 4 Black Lives, and Families for Justice as Healing.
