Made in America at Joe's Pub

Made In America

a TerryandTheCuz conceit

World Premiere Season!

Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater: April 30 – May 19, 2019

After decades of absorbing American pop culture, two Malaysian screenwriters set out to write the perfect American film but which is it? The liberal-arthouse-movie that America needs or the white-savior-summer-action blockbuster movie that it wants? 

Low on sleep, high on caffeine and short on time, these two dreamers must find common ground quickly if they are to achieve their pursuit of identity, fame and fortune. Can these two Malaysians convince America that they are more American than apple pie? It’s go time! Take me out to the ball game and bring the rain! USA! USA! USA!

Made In America is a collaboration between artists from Malaysia and Australia about America. This project is generously supported by The Australia Council for the Arts, The Consulate General of Australia (New York) and The Consulate General of Malaysia (New York).

CONTENT WARNING: Made In America contains adult content, including: prop firearms, gunshot sounds, violence and explicit language.  

The performance will extend beyond the stage, and some guests will be asked to move during the show.
