Event

Bindlestiff Studio presents Rody Vera's THE GUERRILLAS OF POWELL STREET
Bindlestiff Studio presents the world premiere of the English translation of

THE GUERRILLAS OF POWELL STREET
by Rody Vera
based on Benjamin Pimentel's novel 'Mga Gerilya sa Powell Street' (The Guerrillas of Powell Street), winner of the 2007 National Book Award for fiction in Manila.
directed by Pablo Bautista

This production is supported through generous grants from The SF Arts Commission and the Puffin Foundation.


Fifty years after they fought alongside the Americans during World War II, Filipino veterans in the twilight of their lives find themselves in a cable car station in Powell Street. They are thousands of miles away from home, instead of "sitting under a mango tree, drinking beer and eating sitsaron" they wait vainly for the benefits promised to them. They all share a common desire; the chance for their body to be buried in their homeland.
