How does a Dragon earn her wings? Maria Porkalob, Jr. yearns for a gayer, more POC-filled life than Bremerton, WA can offer her. When the opportunity to earn a lot of money in a short amount of time presents itself, Maria must make an important decision: leave her debt-ridden mother, four young siblings, and newborn daughter for the wild unknown of Alaska, or stay close to home, family, and intergenerational trauma?

The 2nd in her Dragon Trilogy, Sara Porkalob’s new solo-show traverses 25 years of her mother’s life filled with queer love in a barren land, a dope 90’s R&B soundtrack, and of course, Filpina gangsters. This is Dragon Mama.
