WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In 2016, what does it take for an immigrant to achieve the American dream? With humor and humanity, playwright Jason Kim (HBO's Girls) explores this question in a timely world-premiere play. Directed by Danny Sharron and featuring Laila Robins, The Model American follows Gabriel, a young, gay, Colombian man, as he finds friendship, love, and ambition in the U.S. Developed at Williamstown Theatre Festival under the auspices of the Bill Foeller Fellowship Program in 2016, this play questions the price we are willing to pay for success.
