(Sandra talks at time mark 1:56:00)

Sandra Oh and actress Tamlyn Tomita will be participating in a discussion on race politics at a forum entitled Asian American Opportunities in American Theatre: "Why Not Asian? Why Asian?" on Monday, October 22nd at 2:00 pm PDT/5:00 pm EDT at East West Players David Henry Hwang Theater in Los Angeles.

The event will also be live streamed at http://www.eastwestplayers.org so don't forget to tune in.

The aim of the forum is to find ways for theaters to provide more opportunities for American Asians,  and other panelists will include artistic directors of four leading theaters in Southern California.

The focus will be on issues of inclusion where the following will be discussed: How can Asian American talent (writers, directors, designers, performers) be more visible/participatory in the American Theatre process? What is the role of artistic vision in a community of changing demographics? How can we propel a nationwide movement to advance greater diversity in the American Theatre? What is the strategy we can walk away with after this discussion?

If you're in Los Angeles and interested in attending the event, there's a limited number of seats available to the public and you need to RVSP at this link.
