About This Show

Cowboy v. Samurai, by Michael Golamco, is a contemporary retelling of Cyrano de Bergerac set in the mythic American West. When a beautiful Asian American woman moves to Breakneck, Wyoming, everyone’s in love — the samurai who doesn’t know who he is, the cowboy with the chew and blue jeans, and especially our Cyrano, an Asian American hero who doesn’t stand a chance. In this lyric romantic comedy from one of Asian America’s most exciting young playwrights, love letters are sealed and bound, horses set ablaze and the history of railroads deconstructed. Cowboy v. Samurai makes the problems of race as plain as the nose on your face. Lloyd Suh directs.

No performance Thursday, November 24 (Thanksgiving).
