Three homeless young friends - a Filipina-American with a hidden past, a Filipina transsexual, and a Puerto-Rican hustler - struggle on the streets of Chicago to scrounge up enough cash to bus it to San Francisco before the winter cold hits. All is going according to plan until Theresa dreams of a bearded man searching for her on Lake Michigan, a mystery man in sunglasses stalks Gil after he becomes the star performer at a drag club, a wealthy john appears to be falling in love with Hector, and Marisol - the assistant manager of a doughnut shop - begins practicing magic on them with her cups of far-too-strong coffee. With their hopes and friendships put to the test, will the trio be able to spare some change?
A dramatic comedy loosely adapted from William Shakespeare's Pericles,
from the author of DEVIANT and BEAUTIFUL DAY.
His previous work with 2g includes DON'T EVER LEAVE, as part of TEN.

In The Works represents the developmental, literary wing of Second Generation's productions. Since 1999, the series has presented dozens of new plays by emerging Asian American writers in its mission to identify, nurture and introduce young artists to New York audiences, as well as to foster the development of a new generation of Asian American dramatic literature. Previous plays presented In The Works have earned awards from the New York Foundation of the Arts and the New York Asian American Film Festival, and received production at theatres throughout the country, including Ensemble Studio Theatre, Ma-Yi Theatre Company, Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre, San Jose Repertory, the Village Theatre, East West Players, Mu Performing Arts, and the National Asian-American Theatre Company (NAATCO), among others. On the date of the event, you must check in at least 15 minutes prior to the reading. All readings will begin promptly.
