ABOUT THE PROJECT & PLAYS
TOT by Victor Maog
Director and Dramaturg: Eric Ting
Friday, May 2 at 7:30 pm
TOT follows an immigrant boy who travels from the Ferdinand Marcos-ruled Philippines to the San Francisco Bay Area to meet his long lost parents. He journeys from a country full of strife and military rule only to find himself in his lonely American bedroom conjuring a pro wrestling fantasy to escape his new life.
MS. ORIENTAL by Marisa Marquez
Director and Dramaturg: Elyzabeth Gorman

MS. ORIENTAL looks at the complex legacy of women in Asian history and the narrow lens through which Asian-American women are viewed. It is a comedy of culture and a drama about learning to stand for only oneself.
