Ma-Yi Lab Member Diana Oh Writes, Co-Stars and Co-Directs Rattlestick Production of {my lingerie play}


“What drives an artist to stand in her black corset in Times Square on a soapbox? It began at 17 with her first shoplifted f*ck me bra. Over the course of this unfiltered and soul-baring event, Diana Oh‘s personal collection of unmentionables comes on and off as she and her band ignite the audience to create a saner, safer, more courageous world for us all.”

Our friends at Rattlestick Theater Company are presenting Ma-Yi Lab Member, Diana Oh‘s {my lingerie play} 2017: THE CONCERT AND CALL TO ARMS!!!!!!!!! The Final Installation beginning on September 28. The event is being produced in association with Rosalind Productions, Inc. (Abigail Rose Solomon, Executive Producer). With Diana in the starring role, the concert will be featuring Ryan McCurdy (Musical Direction/Drums), and Ma-Yi’s Peer Gynt and The Norwegian Hapa Band stars, Matt Park (Guitar) and Rocky Vega (Bass).

DRAW THE CIRCLE, Deen’s play will also be produced by Mosaic Theater Company of DC In rep with The Real Americans. Directed by Chay Yew, At the Atlas Performing Arts Center, Lab II, December 1-24, 2017. “Gender transition can be a test for any household-but when Mashuq Deen comes out to his conservative Muslim family, traditional values and Western ideals collide in an hilarious and moving immigration journey unlike any other. Told entirely from the point of view of family and friends, yet performed by Deen himself, Draw the Circle is a moving story about survival, transition, and unconditional love.”

“Truly a tour de force…universal in its observation of love within the family structure.” (Triangle Arts & Entertainment)
