Bindlestiff Studio and PMSTA presents DEATH OF A PLAYER

Bindlestiff Studio San Francisco, CA

After a 3 year break and with a few new cast mates, Filipina American Women's theater group, PMSTA (Pinays Maintaining Sisterhood Through Art) is coming back in full force with a new show, "DEATH OF A PLAYER." Written by Aureen Almario, Andrea Almario, Shannon Pacaoan, Ava Tong, and Christina Ying, "DEATH OF A PLAYER" pushes the idea that in living life to the fullest, one must die to fully live. Initially conceived as a show that lamented loss of youth and innocence, it has since then evolved into a thoughtful, provocative look into the phases of womanhood, decisions made at each intersection, and living and dying with chosen life paths. With a live band incorporating indie, hip-hop, show tunes, and everything in between, the show is sure to provoke with the absurd truths of larger than life theater. Stories include a mail-order-bride game show that shouldn't be so funny, but is; a murder mystery of a cheating lover, where there is no mystery as to who done it; a look at dying early - or wishing one could to hear heartfelt eulogies of one's greatness; the undoing of a family when someone discovers a hole and an electronic eye in the bathroom; a woman's search in finding herself, but is sidetracked by an old lover that returns; and finally three different women are trapped in a apocalyptic zombie era, to find out that one holds a deep secret; how will they survive and will they survive? Directed by A. Fajilan; writing facilitation by Gayle Romasanta; and produced by Maggie Suarez-Calixton. This production is not to be missed! "DEATH OF A PLAYER" will be presented in October 2011 at the newly reconstructed Bindlestiff Studio, 185 Sixth Street in the South of Market Area, SF.
