Pancasila

by Arnold Setiadi

Pancasila

Pancasila is an original play by Arnold Setiadi, which centers on the experiences of Asian-American characters from across the diaspora as they contemplate love, family, dreams, and responsibility in present-day America.

The play primarily focuses on the experiences of Jacob, an aspiring young actor, Camille, an international student from South Asia, and Christian, a young wannabe detective hoping to live up to his parents’ hopes for him.  It also looks at Jacob’s relationship with his more traditional immigrant parents, Harold and Daisy, as well as Christian’s growing relationship with his new partner-in-(anti)crime, Brian.  A comedy-drama, the play frequently features moments of slapstick, physical comedy, and comedic wordplay, whilst also providing an honest and moving look at what it means to navigate questions of identity, heritage, and aspiration in our current cultural landscape.

Content warning: this show contains a moment of violence and a representation of a dead body onstage.
