Dragon Mama PART II

  • 18th and Union 1406 18th Ave Seattle, WA 98122 United States (map)

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 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 ghosts?

After a developmental run this summer at 18th and Union and a week intensive workshop at American Repertory Theatre, Sara Porkalob is ready to share this newer and chunkier Dragon Mama, the second play in her family trilogy, the DRAGON CYCLE. Dragon Mama traverses 25 years of her mother’s life filled with queer love in a barren land, a dope 90’s R&B soundtrack, Filipino gangsters, and ghosts.

Appropriate for ages 12+
