Last chance to catch 'Flipzoids' is this weekend

‘Flipzoids’ a coproduction of Generator Theater Company and The Filipino Community, Inc., will have its final run of four shows this weekend, most of which will include a talkback session with Christine Marasigan.

Shows will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and at 2 p.m. Sunday. Thursday through Saturday shows will include the talkback. All shows will be held at McPheters Hall, in Holy Trinity Church, at 325 Gold St. downtown.

“Flipzoids” is the story of three generations of Filipino immigrants: Redford is a 20-something kid that hangs out at beachside restrooms searching for connections; Vangie is a nurse who memorizes the dictionary to sound more American; Aying, Vangie’s mother, struggles with understanding a daughter to whom she has become an embarrassment. Together, they search to understand their identity in their new American world. 

Originally produced by Ma-Yi Theater Company in New York City, Flipzoids was the winner of the Obie Award for Best Actress.

Tickets are available online at, and at Hearthside Books and the JACC.
