COWBOY VERSUS SAMURAI by Michael Golamco


This romantic comedy, directed by Jeffrey Lo, is based on the French classic, Cyrano de Bergerac. A high school English teacher--and the only Korean American man living in a dusty Wyoming town--falls for a new teacher, a bright, gorgeous Asian-American woman. But she is attracted only to white men — such as the handsome but fairly dim P.E. teacher. Savagely mirthful and often moving, this play was deemed "funny, sharply written, [tackling] the topic of race head-on, with both barrels blazing.”
