Things aren't right at home. Nicole’s lola (Tagalog for grandmother) is starting to forget more and more details. But now it's more than misplaced keys. In a span of three months she changes the locks on all the doors, starts driving on the wrong side of the street and shoplifts Rocawear and Sean John outfits from Serramonte Mall. As the family struggles through her grandmother's descent into dementia, Nicole faces the conflict between being a respectful Filipina apo (Tagalog for granddaughter) or pursuing her American dream of being the first Filipina-American actress to win an Oscar. What's a Fil-Am girl to do?
Described by Comedian Dave Chappelle as “funny, heartwarming and funny again,” Forgetting the Details is an endearing performance piece that captures the unwavering love between a lola and apo. Nicole Maxali's one-woman show will make you laugh, cry and remind you that in the end, it's not the details that matter.
