Unmuted Stories presents The Wrong Place: Or, How Not to Write a Play About the Rohingya Genocide, an original play about the Rohingya genocide in Myanmar and Bangladesh.

With over one million people displaced and thousands of lives lost since ethnic violence began anew in August of 2017, the time for meaningful action in Myanmar and for the Rohingya is long overdue. Through a combination of direct testimonials, comedy, and satire, The Wrong Place takes a critical look at how this tragedy unfolded, why it has taken the international community so long to act, and how everyday people engage with humanitarian crises.

The play will be performed as a staged reading followed by a brief Q&A hosted by Sue-Jean Sung with writers Aiden Ardine and Trevor Stankiewicz.

This play is coming to San Francisco for two nights only with a donation-based entrance. All proceeds will go towards supporting the Rohingya people and non-profits committed to their support.
