In continuation of celebrating AANHPI Heritage Month, the Museum of Chinese in America is honored to collaborate with Playwright/Director Patrick Lee to present a staged reading of his play, There is Always Sunshine on the Stage, produced by Eight Corners. There is Always Sunshine on the Stage is a poignant play that emphasizes the importance of storytelling. The plot follows the ‘Sunshine Theater Group’ on a quest for the perfect play to commemorate their 50th anniversary — possibly their final performance due to financial challenges.  Life brings forth a variety of narratives from different individuals, yet their unique tales ultimately converge toward a collective story – “The People’s” story. Often overlooked even within the AAPI community, these stories need to continue living. This play aims to celebrate and preserve the plurality of humanity. Centered on authenticity and cultural stewardship, the play embodies a sense of hopefulness. By retelling these stories genuinely, their narratives can be reclaimed from time and history’s erasure, ensuring the people are heard and respected.

The staged reading of There is Always Sunshine on the Stage will be presented in English.
