Almost Live: Mala
Hosted by Arts Club Theatre Company, VocalEye
What do we do for those we love?
“I’m not Mala,” says the narrator of this powerful and irreverent one-woman show. She is doing the best she can—raising her daughter, working, walking the dog, getting dinner on the table, caring for her increasingly frail and irascible mother—all while longing wistfully for one perfect clementine.
In this exquisitely resonant story, a child of immigrants grapples with the universal experience of supporting the people we love, questioning how far must we go, and for how long. What does it mean to be good? Mala's candid and ultimately cathartic exploration of family bonds creates space for contemplation and provides a message of resilience and optimism.
**VocalEye Almost Live on September 29th: ** The VocalEye virtual lobby opens at 6:30 pm Pacific Time for some socializing and community updates with host Amy Amantea.
