Description

Artists Against Oppression (AAO) is presenting Chanchanit Martorell, Executive Director of the Thai Community Development Center (CDC), with the Charles Domokos Award. Come get a special sneak preview of renowned playwright, Henry Ong’s play “The Blade of Jealousy” and enjoy some delicious Thai food delicately prepared by a Thai trafficking survivor, Rotchana Sussman, at a reception following the play. The play is a modern-day adaptation of Spanish Renaissance Playwright Tirso de Molina’s madcap comedy “La Celosa De Si Misma" (Jealous of Herself).

All proceeds will go to the Thai Community Development Center and Artists Against Oppression.

Artists Against Oppression (AAO) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create or support “artistic endeavors that 1.) seek to bring to public consciousness the plights of various oppressed or dispossessed peoples in America; and, 2.) through these creative/artistic endeavors, seek to improve the status/lives of such oppressed/dispossessed either by inclusion in community artistic projects or contributing.”

The Charles Domokos Award is named after the organization’s longtime treasurer and is awarded to supporters of the arts in Los Angeles.

Event starts at 7:30pm, doors open at 7.
