I am excited to announce that I am part of the cast in the reading of Kees Roorda’s play “A kid like Rishi” with the Origin Theatre Company, directed by Erwin Maas. We will perform on Monday May 21st, 7pm at the NYU Glucksman Ireland House. This reading will be free and open to the public.
Please come out and support this wonderful piece inspired by the true story of what happened to Dutch citizen Rishi Chandrikasing. “On November 24, 2012, he was shot dead on platform four at The Hague Hollands Spoor by a policeman. He was 17 years old and turned out to be unarmed. A fateful coincidence of circumstances. Playwright Kees Roorda was inspired by the police report with witness reports and interviewed those involved. He processed all this into a series of texts.”
