Filipino American Experiences

In recognition of Filipino American Heritage Month, The Umbrella Stage Company is pleased to present a program exploring the Filipino American Experience through the dramatic writing and production process as part of the 2021 Concord Festival of Authors.

In an interactive discussion with playwright Hortense Gerardo, director Michelle Aguillon, and actor Jude Torres, the panel will present a scene of an original play that examines what it means to be a Filipino American in relation to the American Dream through the lens of a Filipino family living in the suburbs of Cleveland. The event will include a short viewing of a scene-in-progress from an upcoming World Premiere of the playwright’s new work commissioned for The Umbrella's 2021-2022 season.

Free event, but requires registration in advance.
