EATING WITH LOLA Next Stage Theatre Festival

Lola (“Grandmother” in Filipino) is so old and sick she has to be spoon fed by her granddaughter, Grace. But it wasn’t always like this. Over the course of her final meal on earth, Lola explains how it was always her job to find food—even if that meant stealing it. Part confession, part revelation, Lola’s epic tale unravels the entire modern history of Manila from the time of the Thomasites to the second wave of Filipino migration to the United States— one spoonful at a time.

Presented by Sulong Theatre Company Written and performed by Catherine Hernandez Directed by Ann Powell (Puppetmongers Theatre) Lighting Design by Kevin Hutson Stage Manager: Renna Reddie

Developed by the Kapisanan Centre for Philippine Arts and Culture, Carlos Bulosan Theatre, the Lab Cab Festival, the Buzz Festival, the Festival Mujeres en Enscena and originally workshopped by fu-GEN Asian Canadian Theatre Company.
