Two stirring one-act plays dramatize the Filipino-American experience in California at A.C.T.'s Strand Theater. Save the I-Hotel etches out the tender, 43-year relationship between two Filipino immigrants who are about to be evicted from their home in San Francisco's International Hotel. Then, Monstress tells the tale of a B-movie director from Manila who follows a shady American filmmaker to Hollywood in pursuit of the ever-shifting sands of the American dream. Based on an acclaimed book of short stories by Lysley Tenorio, these two world-premiere adaptations brim with the love and longing of characters that Slate.com called "zany, witty and beautifully drawn."
