Soaring Solo LLC hosts an online reading of Naturally Tan via Zoom.
Naturally Tan is a one-woman show written and performed by Tanya Thomas, with direction and development by Jessica Lynn Johnson. Told through the bold perspective of a vivacious drag queen from Singapore named Tanvi, this solo show follows Tanya Thomas through her cross cultural struggles with identity, beauty and self acceptance while growing up as a Indian minority in Singapore.
This reading features the script as a work in progress and is intended for the creative team to receive constructive feedback to make improvements upon the script.
This seriocomedy utilizes multiple characters to explore themes ranging from the cruelty of body dysmorphia – to the adventures of finding one’s place in the world. As Tanvi comedically recounts Tanya’s rigid upbringing in a Singaporean Chinese majority environment, we watch Tanya encounter a myriad of transformative experiences along the way. Will Tanya hide behind her insecurities forever or will she discover her newfound confidence as a woman, mother and artist?
Donations are greatly appreciated and all proceeds will go toward the future performance of this show.
