FLIPZOIDS by Ralph B. Pena

The award-winning Fil-Am play comes home!


“Flipzoids” tells the tale of three Filipino Americans who search for connections and a shared reality in Orange County, a place where “better” is always up for debate.

Directed by Jon Lawrence Rivera, this lyrical, highly theatrical work is brought to life by a trio of outstanding performers.

Sporting platinum locks and peacock-blue eye shadow, Maxwel S. Corpuz plays Redford, a young man who arrived from the Philippines as a child with his parents but now lives very much alone. He primarily inhabits public restrooms, where a friendly chat between bathroom stalls is close enough for comfort - most of the time, anyway.

Evangelina (Ellen D. Williams) is a fairly new arrival. She’s a young nurse who holds all of American culture in a tight embrace, from the language to the arts to the glamour of upscale shopping malls.

Then there’s her mother, Aying (Becca Godinez), who’s fresh off the boat and not buying any of it. Instead, she tells stories of her homeland and clings to traditions and rituals that make her feel like she belongs someplace. Unfortunately for her daughter, that place is not Anaheim.
