By Michael Golamco
October 20 - November 18, 2006
Fridays at 8pm
Saturdays at 3pm & 8pm

The creators of the popular series Sex in Seattle present the Northwest premiere of Cowboy Versus Samurai by Michael Golamco. Cowboy Versus Samurai is an exquisitely written, laugh-out-loud, romantic comedy that explores the sexual dynamics that surface around race when an attractive Korean American woman moves to town. A politically edgy exploration of inter-racial dating and identity through irony, humor, and social commentary. A hit around the country, Cowboy Versus Samurai will be published in New Playwrights: Best Plays of 2006. Rated "PG-13" - Contains some mature language. Starring Jose Abaoag, Khanh Doan, Travis Myers, Ray Tagavilla (evening performances), and David Hsieh (matinee performances).

"Cowboy Versus Samurai has a smart script, with lots of laughs and plenty of poignancy. Besides the light romantic comedy, it also delves into questions of identity, prejudice and the complexity of love that will resonate with audiences of all backgrounds." -St. Paul Pioneer Press

"With exquisite moments of truth, hilarity, and despair, the play is a thoughtful, thoroughly compelling piece of theater." - (Pick of the Week)

"Golamco's script is a decided success. . . . a gentle, genial, and frequently rather wise comedy of character and race." - Village Voice

". . . this promises to be the kind of topical social commentary with a sharp tang of humor . . ." - City Pages (A-List Pick)
