Audio Described Performance: Cambodian Rock Band by Lauren Yee

February 29 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

A poster with information about the show Cambodian Rock Band.

Guitars tuned. Mic checked. Get ready to rock! This darkly funny, electric new play with music tells the story of a Khmer Rouge survivor returning to Cambodia for the first time in thirty years, as his daughter prepares to prosecute one of Cambodia’s most infamous war criminals. Backed by a live band playing contemporary Dengue Fever hits and classic Cambodian oldies, this thrilling story toggles back and forth in time as father and daughter face the music of the past. Directed by Chay Yew, the New York premiere of this intimate rock epic about family secrets is set against a dark chapter of Cambodian history. It launches Steinberg Award-winning playwright Lauren Yee’s Residency 5.

Signature offers one audio described performance per production for audiences with vision disabilities. Audiences are given a receiver outside the theater and during the performance a trained describer narrates the action and visual elements of the show.
