Year Zero[]

Golamco's play about Cambodian Americans growing up in Long Beach, Year Zero, ran at the Second Stage Theater in New York City, Victory Gardens Theater in Chicago, and at the Colony Theater in Burbank, Los Angeles. Year Zero also was a Grand Prize winner of the Chicago Dramatists' Many Voices Project and was nominated for a Jeff award in the "Best New Work" category. In New York, the originating cast starred Mason Lee (son of director Ang Lee) as Vuthy, and David Huynh played Vuthy and Tim Chiou played Han when the production went to LA's Colony Theater (with Chiou also playing the role of Han in the Chicago production at the Victory Gardens Theater).

Cowboy vs. Samurai[]

Golamco's play Cowboy Versus Samurai has run with the National Asian American Theater Company in New York, receiving favorable reviews from the New York Times. The play was also produced in Seattle as well as in Canada at the Vancouver Asian Canada Theater company and in Hong Kong by Looking Glass Productions. The Los Angeles premiere of the play was produced and staged by Artists at Play in the fall of 2013. The play has also been produced in Minneapolis (by Mu Performing Arts), Seattle (by SiS Productions), San Francisco (by the Asian American Theater Company), San Diego, California (by Mo’olelo), and Dallas, Texas. Cowboy Versus Samurai was also selected by the Tribeca Film Institute for its All Access Open Stage Program, and it is available in print in Smith and Kraus’s New Playwrights: The Best Plays of 2006 and The Best Stage Scenes of 2006.


One of Golamco's most recent plays, Build, premiered at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles during October to November 2012. The play concerns the story of two Silicon Valley legends struggling with coding their latest video game and dealing with a female artificial intelligence, or A.I. According to an article in LA Weekly, Golamco also had to immerse himself in the game World of Warcraft in order to write the play.
