“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.
