Pure White by Lexi Thammavong

A PAPA Playwrights Project Reading

Pure White by Lexi Thammavong

Luna and Ethan don’t remember what happened last night. When they wake in their messy Miami apartment, there’s nothing around but the usual Xanax and cocaine. That is until an unexpected (and unwelcome) guest arrives, and soon discovers that none of them can leave. Can our unlikely trio escape the darkness, or will it consume them?

Content Warning: Pure White explores topics of addiction, death, and mental illness. The characters abuse prescription as well as illicit substances. The play also mentions Sex Work and features a non-sexual romantic relationship with a large age gap (18 & 63). Nothing physical occurs between the two characters. There is a brief allusion to sexual assault.

Playwrights Project is led by Stephanie Kyung Sun Walters


Philadelphia Asian Performing Artists (PAPA) is a member-based community and arts organization that provides wholistic artist care for 100+ Asian and Asian American artists in the Philadelphia area. Through social events, residency and professional development programs, grassroots organizing, and performance opportunities, we hope to empower our members and reflect the greater diversity of this city and its stories.


PAPA Playwrights Project raises up the voices of emerging Asian and Asian American playwrights in our city with Lead Artist, Stephanie Kyung Sun Walters. Over the course of a 2 year residency, our playwrights hone their craft through workshops, readings, professional development opportunities, and guidance from a lead artist. PAPA Playwrights meet monthly to share drafts, work with local dramaturgs, and discuss local and national theatre. They engage with the new play development process and culminate with a reading of their work.
