Monument, or Four Sisters (A Sloth Play)
by Sam Chanse
directed by Giovanna Sardelli
May 12-29, 2022
Sisters, Daughters of API Immigrants, Family, Sloths, and all that and more as the title suggests. Amy studies coral reefs, Constance writes for children's television, Mac mysteriously left a job she loves, and Lina is MIA. Add one epic road trip, four talking sloths, and countless hilarious cartoon bombs and you’ve got MONUMENT, or FOUR SISTERS (A SLOTH PLAY).
Cast will include: Rinabeth Apostol, Lisa Hori-Garcia, Erin Mei-Ling Stuart, and Sango Tajima.
One of the most unique and exciting voices in theatre is Sam Chanse. Sam is part of a world premiere at The Public and a new play for The Civilians both happening in New York City prior to Monument.
In a new collaboration with San Francisco’s Girls Chorus and Artistic Director /Conductor Valérie Saint-Agathe, we host the world premiere of Tomorrow’s Memories: A Little Manila Diary. This production is a commissioned choral-opera from American composer Matthew Welch. A collaborative project years in the making, this staged work is based on the 1924-1928 childhood diary writings of Filipina immigrant Angeles Monrayo, following her diasporic journey from the Philippines to Hawai’i to Stockon. This book has become seminal reading through the late, great scholar Dr. Dawn Buhalano Mabalon.
The project will feature over 40 singers and guest artists, stage director Sean San José, guitarist Florante Aguilar, violinist Patti Kilroy, percussionist Levy Lorenzo, and video design by Joan Osato.
