Produced by Sulong Theatre Directed by Ann Powell (Puppetmongers Theatre)
Sulong Theatre Collective joins forces with the legendary Puppetmongers to bring you the story of Lola, so old and sick she has to be spoon fed by her granddaughter Grace. 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.
A one woman (and one puppet) tour-de-force. First excerpt was presented at the 2009 Kultura Festival. First full length version developed by fu-GEN Asian Canadian Theatre Company.
