Ai Mai: A Play in II Acts
MetadataShow full item record
I wanted to find a way to combine my interests with my SIP. I am a theatre major and a Japanese minor and I feel that writing a play about Japan and Japanese culture is an excellent way to bring the two together. My love affair with Japan started about seven years ago and has continued ever since. Study abroad marked my second visit to the land of the rising sun; this trip was more challenging as I saw some negative aspects of Japan. I wanted a way to come to terms with life changing events-writing this play has allowed me to do so. I plan on having a career in theatre. Alhough my primary interest is in acting, I am also interested in directing and possibly becoming a drama teacher. Playwriting also intrigues me, yet I have never written a play before. This SIP has been extremely challenging in many ways. However, I wanted to learn more about playwriting and explore if it's an endeavor that I want to continue to delve into.
