It's back-to-school season, and in this episode Rachel is taking notes from multi-hyphenate theater maker Vichet Chum. Rachel & Vichet met years ago working on a festival of short plays written by high school students, and since then Rachel has watched as Vichet has grown from actor to actor/writer to sought after playwright and industry leader. In this episode, they recount parts of his journey together.

Highlights include:

  • Vichet's experience writing, producing, and performing in his one man show
  • How Vichet first came to writing and how his process has developed
  • Vichet's involvement with AAPAC and the Visibility Report released earlier this year
  • The importance of penning the Cambodian-American experience in different forms
  • We're thrilled to catch up with this writer/performer before two of his newest plays premiere in the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 seasons at the Alley Theatre (Houston, TX) and Steppenwolf, respectively. Look out for all the things Vichet is up to!
