Tug of War
Tug of War: a series of short plays on work, war and trauma
Written by Zaineb Abdulla, Giovanni Ortega, Lorely Trinidad-Ontal and Rohan Zhou-Lee
Directed by Aaron Mays

CIRCA Pintig is proud to celebrate Asian American Heritage Month and Filipino Independence Day in Chicago by presenting Tug of War, a quartet of short theatrical works on the Iraq War, work and immigration written by Asian Americans.

The play begins with Wayne, written by CIRCA Pintig favorite Giovanni Ortega, about a Filipino-American soldier who speaks of raids and atrocities committed while serving abroad. The monologue is based on interview transcripts from a real war veteran.

Next, meet Raza, an actual Iraqi refugee. Written by Zaineb Abdulla, The Story of Raza follows her journey into the United States, fleeing the horrors of the conflict within Iraq. This work is based on her interview.

In Rohan Zhou-Lee's The Soldier's Home, CIRCA Pintig takes you into the home of Eric and Allegra. After surviving a roadside bomb and losing very close friends, the couple must redefine their relationship and rebuild their marriage.

And, back by popular demand, CIRCA Pintig remounts Caregiver. This monologue, written by Lorely Trinidad-Ontal, follows an anonymous Filipino caregiver who struggles not only to support herself, but also her family in the homeland and her client Mr. King.

This production, directed by Aaron Mays, marks the 24th season of Filipino Chicago theater. Cast members include Alice da Cunha, Brian Kung, Robert (Bobby) Manzano, Annamarie Tabo and Loreen Targos
