About Dragon Mama
After a run at OBERON in the spring of 2018, virtuosic performer Sara Porkalob returns with new songs in her musical Dragon Lady and also turns her attention to another chapter of her family’s history with Dragon Mama, the second piece in her Dragon Cycle.
How does a Dragon earn her wings? Maria Porkalob, Jr., yearns for a gayer, more POC-filled life than Bremerton, WA, can offer. When presented with an opportunity to make a quick fortune, Maria must make an important decision: leave her debt-ridden mother, four young siblings, and newborn daughter Sara for the wild unknown of Alaska, or stay close to home, family, and intergenerational trauma. Traversing 25 years filled with queer love in a barren land, Dragon Mama features ghosts, Filipino gangsters, and a dope 80s and 90s soundtrack.
