THE PEARL PROJECT, a Filipino American theater festival, presents two full-length plays and two one-acts in repertory:
In Eric Gamalinda's full-length play, Resurrection, starring Obie winner Ching Valdes-Aran, the unexplained suicide of a young woman triggers a series of relentless changes in a family, tearing it apart.
Jorshinelle Taleon-Sonza's full-length play, The Encounter, dramatizes an unexpected visit by the incumbent President of the Philippines in his political rival's prison cell.
Quarter Century Baby, a one-act play by Kristine M. Reyes, starring Ali Ewoldt, tells the story of a parents' surprise visit to their Filipino daughter and her American boyfriend--a visit which causes turmoil and reveals painful truths.
Something Blue, a one-act play by Kristine M. Reyes, follows an estranged father's quest to reconnect with his daughter on her wedding day.
