We’re sure you won’t be able to get enough of PMSTA ladies after Death of a Player. And you won’t have to wait long. Check out former PMSTA co-producer, Nicole Maxali, in November for her one-woman show Forgetting the Details.
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, is driving on the wrong side of the road and is shoplifting Rocawear and Sean John outfits from Serramonte Mall. As the family struggles through her grandmother’s descent into Alzherimer’s, Nicole faces the conflict between being a respectful Filipina apo (Tagalog for granddaughter) or pursuing her American dream. What’s a Fil-Am girl to do?
Directed by Paul Stein of Comedy Central Stage in Hollywood, Nicole Maxali’s full length solo performance piece, Forgetting the Details, explores the familial and cultural-related challenges a young adult faces when dealing with the challenges of losing a loved one to dementia. It is the full length version of Nicole’s highly acclaimed thirty minute solo show “I Heart Lola”.
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.
