FACE TO FACE: HMONG WOMEN’S EXPERIENCE
An intense, moving tale of five Hmong women from (almost) birth to maturity. This is not fictional tale, this the real stuff, related on a simple unadorned stage by these five women. They tell their real personal stories with the help of a professional writer and two co-directors. The series began in 1962 from Ping Chong + Company and known as Undesirable Elements.
The women’s stories were personal, and by turns uplifting, sad irking and even embarrassing. But the seventy-five minute production on the bare stage is often mesmerizing and worth attending. The production is available at Park Square Theatre through March 15.
