Nanay – Distillery Festival (reading) @ Macha Theatre Works (Seattle – Fremont)
Angela has arrived to congratulate her twin sister on her new baby but, instead finds Eve “cohabitating” with a Filipino vampire with an infamous hunger for all things fetus. Does Angela believe Eve’s claim that all is well with her new relationship?
Nanay incorporates Filipino mythology and tradition to compare Eastern and Western approaches to sisterhood, trauma, and healing. Written by Molly Olis Krost, directed by Anamaria Guerzon.
Location: West of Lenin (203 N 36th St)
The Macha Distillery series is a celebration of emerging theater and an opportunity for playwrights to gain valuable feedback on new work. Each play in the series receives a live reading by a cast of professional actors, allowing it to live and breathe off the page. The readings conclude with a discussion of the play with the playwright, giving writers the chance to receive feedback from Seattle audiences and providing a platform for audiences to help shape new works in process.
This year Macha’s Distillery readings are held in festival form: 7 plays, 3 days, 1 New Works Reading Festival. Full schedule:
