Crocodile (The Last Escape) @ La MaMa Playwrights Showcase
I will be reprising the role of Moira in Amanda Andrei's new play Crocodile (The Last Escape) on Sunday, April 2, from 4:45-6pm at the La MaMa Playwrights Showcase! It had it's world premier back in November 5th, and now we will be presenting it at La MaMa on Great Jones Street in NYC.
A young Filipina torn between the love of her life and duty to her family, who walks alone at night, deep in the Agusan Swamp. In the 1970s Philippines, her world is changing: Filipinos leave their families for other countries, the swamp is drying up and silent. In guilt and grief, she cries out for answers––and is swallowed by a legendary time-warping crocodile lurking in the swamp. Within the beast, she meets a sculptor and long-time resident of the reptilian belly. In a world where dreams/futures dodge across geography and space, they must navigate purgatory to find their own meaning of being alive.
