CIRCA Pintig restages “Sister Outlaw” 

Chicago, IL – CIRCA Pintig brings back to the stage Lani T. Montreal’s Sister Outlaw, a dramedy about love and friendship in its many splendored and gendered things.

A comic yet touching story of Marina, a "femme Filipina" lesbian and Joey, a high spirited dyke who’s set to move heaven and earth to keep Marina in her life even if it means getting her brother Jason involved in this relationship of hidden love and unexpected liaisons. The three strike a deal each one discovering feelings unfelt and unsaid until bonding becomes deeper. Joey is stricken with jealousy as Marina and Jason get more intimate forcing Joey to confront her real feelings for Marina. Carrie, a ramp-swaying transgender friend of the family adds her wit and panache in analyzing the ensuing ‘love triangle’. The situation goes wacky when Joey and Jason’s Mother makes a surprise visit turning the whole event into a ‘coming out’ party for everyone. 

Directed by Giau Truong, the play goes on stage on August 13-16, 1 19-23, 26-30 and September 2-6, 2009, Wednesdays to Saturdays, 8pm and Sundays at 3pm at the Dream Theater on 556 W. 18th St., Chicago with music by Demetrio Maguigad and production design by Louie Sison.
