About Asuncion - Off Broadway

Show Info


: Edgar and Vinny are not racist. In fact, Edgar maintains a blog condemning American imperialism and Vinny is three-quarters into a PhD in Black Studies. When a young Filipina woman named Asuncion becomes their new roommate, Edgar and Vinny have a perfect opportunity to demonstrate how open-minded they truly are. Academy Award-nominated Jesse Eisenberg's hilarious and heartbreaking new play explores the complicated ways we exploit culture and politics for our own needs.

JESSE EISENBERG is the author of two plays, The Revisionist and Asuncion, and has written the music and lyrics to Me Time!, a musical. As an actor, he has appeared in the films, The Squid and the Whale, Adventureland, Zombieland, and Roger Dodger. On stage, Jesse starred opposite Al Pacino in Lyle Kessler’s Orphans and in Lucy Thurber’s Scarcity. Most recently, he received critical acclaim for his performance in The Social Network for which he earned the Best Actor Award from the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures and an Academy Award Nomination for Best Actor.
