Pan-Damn-It!” is a “zoom” play written by Kyung Hyun Kim, faculty member in the Department of East Asian Studies and Visual Studies at UC Irvine, and co-directed by Jane Page, faculty member in UCI’s Drama Department, and Gavin Cameron-Webb, theatre director. The script highlights the much-publicized mask debate in the US by juxtaposing the moral conflict between individual liberty and public health, and by exposing the invisible social divisions that are complicated by the dynamic multi-ethnic makeup of Southern California.
Join us in viewing a live reading of Pan Damn It! as it is performed by professional artists as well as current drama students from UCI Claire Trevor School of the Arts. This reading is about 90 minutes and will be followed by a live Question and Answer session with the playwright, directors and cast right after the performance.
“Pan Damn It!” features sensitive topics such as mask debate, school reopening policies, and COVID-related death."
