About the show:
Maria yearns for a gayer, more diverse life in rural Washington state. When presented with an opportunity to make a quick fortune, she must make an important decision: leave her debt-ridden family and newborn daughter for the wild unknown of Alaska, or stay close to home, family, and intergenerational ghosts. Traversing 25 years, Dragon Mama is a one-woman adventure filled with queer love in a barren land, Filipino family lore, and a dope ’90s R&B soundtrack!

Low-cost previews: Sept 14-22.
