BALD SISTERS HAS EXTENDED THROUGH JANUARY 21.
“BLINK ONCE FOR BURIAL. BLINK TWICE FOR A FRIDAY FUNERAL. BLINK THRICE IF YOU HATE MY GUTS.”
ABOUT THIS SHOW
Ma is dead; now what happens? Vichet Chum’s world premiere follows two sisters—at odds since birth—as they settle the affairs of their strong-willed, wise-cracking mother while reconciling their family’s Cambodian heritage with its ever-so-complicated American present. Where’s the will? A burial or cremation? And what do we do with Ma’s teeth? Bald Sisters is an irreverent, comedic and ultimately poignant examination of the ties that bind multigenerational families of immigrants together: history, spirituality and humor.
This play runs for 100 minutes and will be performed without an intermission.
There will be a "Masks Required" performance of Bald Sisters on:
- Saturday, January 7, 2023 at 2:30PM
