After a run at OBERON in the spring of 2018, virtuosic performer Sara Porkalob returns with new songs in Dragon Lady, and also turns her attention to another chapter of her family’s history with Dragon Mama, the second piece in her Dragon Cycle.

Dragon Lady
It is the year of the Water Dragon and the eve of Grandma Maria’s 60th birthday. By the light of the karaoke machine, fueled by pork dumplings and Diet Pepsi, she shares a dark secret from her Filipino gangster past with one lucky grandchild. Traversing 50 years of faulty family memories, Seattle-based performer Sara Porkalob returns to share this timely new musical about what it means to come to America.

Dragon Mama
How does a Dragon earn her wings? Maria Porkalob, Jr. yearns for a gayer, more POC-filled life than Bremerton, WA can offer. When presented with an opportunity to make a quick fortune, 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 second play in her Dragon Cycle, Sara Porkalob’s new solo show traverses 25 years of her mother’s life filled with queer love in a barren land, a dope 90s R&B soundtrack, and Filipino gangsters. This is Dragon Mama.

Created and Performed by Sara Porkalob
Directed by Andrew Russell
