Powers New Voices Festival - Exotic Deadly: Or The MSG Play

Summary

EXOTIC DEADLY: OR THE MSG PLAY
By Keiko Green
Directed by Jesca Prudencio

Saturday, April 9 at 7:30 p.m.

It’s 1999, and Ami is an awkward, Japanese American high schooler whose world comes crashing down with a terrible discovery: her family is responsible for manufacturing MSG, the poison spice getting all the kids hooked! Meanwhile, a cool new girl, Exotic Deadly, arrives from Japan, and she’s not playing by the rules. In this time-traveling adventure, Ami vows to save the world from MSG and realizes what she’s capable of, if she could just get off the ocean floor....

A line for standby seating will form 30 minutes before each performance of the Powers New Voices Festival.  Based on ticket-holder attendance, those standing in the standby line may be seated.  Seating is based on seat availability and is not guaranteed.  Latecomers with tickets are also not guaranteed admittance.

The Old Globe’s New Voices Play Development Program is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. The Old Globe’s Community Voices program is supported by Subaru of El Cajon and The Ann Davies Fund for Teaching Artists.
