FLIPZOIDS

Genre: Other
Ralph B. Pena; Directed by Loy Arcenas

Queens Theatre in the Park (QTP) presents a reading of Flipzoids by Ralph B. Pena, directed by Loy Arcenas, on Saturday, December 18, 2010 at 8pm at Queens Theatre in the Park, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Flushing, NY. Tickets are free and reservations are available by phone at 718-760-0064.

A part of QTP’s Immigrant Voices Reading Series, Flipzoids is a funny and highly moving story about three Filipinos navigating through the shifting landscape of home, desire, and loneliness. Set on a deserted beach in southern California, the play examines what it means to be an outsider, to be Filipino and/or American; to be a hybrid. Flipzoids tests the great American axiom, "please melt in our pot" by showing three generations coping with ethnic and sexual confusion in the "promised land" of America. Flipzoids is about what we do, how we twist ourselves, to become what is expected of us - the New Americans. This performance is presented by the esteemed Ma Yi Theatre Company, a frequent QTP collaborator. 

This reading of Flipzoids is part of Queens Theatre in the Park’s Immigrant Voices Project Reading Series, a New Play Development Program sponsored by ConEdison.
