Event Description

“How far would you go to give your child a better future?”

In pursuit of the American Dream, six pregnant Filipina women risk everything. Confined to a one-bedroom one-bath unit in East Hollywood, they do their best to overcome fears of jail and deportation so that their children can have a better life. Playwright Boni B. Alvarez examines the promise of U.S. Citizenship.

“As the child of Filipino immigrants, I have always been fascinated by the American Dream,” says playwright Alvarez. “In America Adjacent I wrestle with what the dream actually is, how it is packaged and marketed abroad, and what the reality is for anyone ever achieving it.”

Skylight Theatre Company is honored to be presenting their multi-award winning production of Rotterdam at Center Theatre Group’s Block Party at the Kirk Douglas Theatre March/April 2019. The production won the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award in 2018 for Best Production. Additional LADCC awards for Rotterdam include Writing and Lead Actress. It also received top honors at the 2018 Stage Raw Awards, winning Production of the Year and Leading Actress awards. Recognized as a powerhouse of new play development by Dramatist Magazine, many of Skylight’s World Premieres have gone on to be performed nationally and internationally.

Cast: Evie Abat, Angela T. Baesa, Toni Katano, Hazel Lozano, Samantha Valdellon, Sandy Velasco, and Arianne Villareal
