Presented by AEA’s Eastern Region Equal Employment Opportunity Committee and Leviathan Lab in celebration of Asian Heritage Month, the Asian American Female Playwrights Short Play Festival was the brainchild of Christine Toy Johnson (Playwright/Actor and Co-chair of AEA’s EEOC), Ariel Estrada (EEOC member and founder of Leviathan Lab), Nelson T. Eusebio III (Resident Director at Leviathan Lab), and Ji-Hyun Lee (playwright) who joined forces to create a platform for Asian American female playwrights.
