GENESEO, N.Y. - We’re pleased to have on campus the only Thai American playwright in the United States, Prince Gomolvilas, who is teaching an intensive playwriting seminar for 11 students through April 13. He guest taught an Acting II class at Geneseo two years ago while working with Rochester’s Geva Theatre Center.
Gomolvilas has produced eight full-length plays and his The Brothers Paranormal, a comedy/horror/tragedy play about Thai-American ghost hunters, will be produced at Pan Asian Repertory Theatre in New York City in 2019. He frequently writes comedies with a supernatural twist, along with the occasional drama.
Gomolvilas' visit is co-sponsored by Asian/Asian American Studies and Programming and the Department of Theatre and Dance.
