Sara Porkalob’s “Dragon Baby” at 18th & Union
January 31 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$15 – $25
We have a lot of great performers and storytellers in Seattle. What’s rarer is finding both qualities in the same person, with natural charm to boot. Sara Porkalob is just that. She has been tearing it up in Seattle in recent years, acting in various productions and producing her own acclaimed Dragon Lady with Intiman last year. Her grandmother’s outrageous stories provided the material for Dragon Lady, and in Dragon Baby she continues the familial saga, close to home.
Porkalob is presenting an early short-run of this latest work, January 31 through February 3 at 18th & Union. For those who want a truly intimate theatre experience with one of the region’s brightest emerging talents, this is a must-see.
From 18th and Union:
How does a Dragon earn her wings? Five year old Sara Lee and her lesbian mother set out for the cold, barren land of Alaska to live on a gay, hippie commune. Painfully shy and ashamed of her scaly skin, she wants nothing more than for things to go back to the way they were:
Why did they have to leave Bremerton and their family behind?
Who is mom’s new girlfriend?
What is a drag queen?
A continuation of the Dragon Lady saga, Dragon Baby is Sara Porkalob’s new solo show featuring mothers vs daughters and exactly how much we’re willing to burn down for the people we love.
