  • Trish Rana was born and raised in Manila, Philippines until the age of 9 when her family decided to move to the U.S. She grew to learn and appreciate American culture and the vast diversity of the people she came across. In this salon, Trish talks about the use of skin whitening products in the Philippines and how it is prolific amongst the native population of Filipinos. The cosmetics industry normalizes the use of skin whitening products as a way of marketing and profiting from their products, while at the same time reinforcing the Western, hegemonic, imperialistic values on Filipinos.

Anyone interested in performing in SAST this year should plan to show up at one of the audition dates. Auditions will consist of cold readings from some of the scripts being considered for presentation.

    SAST is the Garfield Center’s annual short play program. It had its earliest roots in 2005, when it was called 8×10 – The 10-Minute Play Project. The name was changed to Short Attention Span Theatre in 2008. Over the years, iit has seen both the premiere of many original plays by local playwrights as well as featured the performances of hundreds of local actors. The Garfield Center’s SAST has remained a successful, yearly program that has grown every year in attendance and popularity.
