Today is My Birthday is an eccentric comedy by award-winning screenwriter and
playwright Susan Soon He Stanton that follows an out-of-work journalist named Emily, who returns home to Hawaii after her life in New York City falls apart. Feeling unfulfilled, Emily creates an alter-ego for a radio dating show in a desperate attempt to turn fantasy into reality. Told through a unique blend of live radio broadcasts, voicemails, and phone calls, this topical and adventurous show highlights Emily attempting to break free from her self-imposed isolation.
The show runs through May 22 at Theatre Exile at 1340 S. 13th Street.
